ABA Play - Phase 4a
If your child does not demonstrate appropriate behavior or cannot behave in a particular situation, you should help him so that he can behave appropriately. If you follow and reinforce this behavior with something nice, he will learn this new behavior!
Giving help (we also call this “prompting”) is precise work. We want to help the child to successfully do what he wants to do, but at the same time we want to give him the space to do it independently.
This requires precise timing from the moment you give help. The better you know your child and observe, the better you can give help at the right moment.
