This is the first step in getting the individual to understand that their actions have consequences, and to encourage them to take responsibility for their behaviour. This board allows the child to choose their own reward (12 symbols are included), but the list of rewards on offer can be extended through using our expansion packs. Alternatively, it is compatible with your existing PCS/PECs image library
They can then be encouraged to work towards this reward, earning stars for good behaviour over the course of the day. If the individual earns enough stars by the end of the agreed period of time (agreed in advance), then they will receive the reward.
From our own experience (both personal and professional) we have found that this board works best if an individual only gains, and never loses, stars. To lose stars can be extremely demotivating, and can can anxiety-related behaviours.
Symbols are 4.5cm square, meaning that they are large enough to easily see (we understand that people on the spectrum are visual learners), but still easy to handle.
This product, like all our products, was inspired by some of the experiences and difficulties we have gone through in raising our own autistic son over the years, and includes a lot of strategies that have helped him cope with some of the challenges that life can bring.
