This advanced level online training is for educational staff who have completed the ABA Certificate Course for Educators and are ready to enhance their skills in the application of reinforcement and prompting. The objective of this 6-module certificate course is for participants to acquire the skills and knowledge to implement prompting and reinforcement strategies more effectively and with greater confidence in the classroom. This course will provide educators with instruction on how to identify potential reinforcers and how to effectively implement individualized and class-wide reinforcement systems. Participants will learn how to choose the most effective prompt(s) based on the student profile, type of classroom placement and the particular skill being taught. Participants will learn how to implement individualized prompting, as well as, classroom-wide prompting strategies including visual cueing systems and embedded prompts. Through online activities, participants will have the opportunity to conduct preference assessments and reinforcement inventories. Throughout this course multiple video vignettes of the implementation of various types of prompting and reinforcement strategies will be provided to support the correct application of these behaviour analytic strategies in the classroom.
