This training teach participants how to use Reinforcement which can mean lots of things to different people. In Applied Behaviour Analysis it is very specifically defined by its function. Although it can mean many things and take on many forms, the hallmark of reinforcement is that desired consequences increase the future frequency of behaviour.

Reinforcement happens along a continuum from primary reinforcement (food, water, and other physical reinforcers) to social reinforcers, such as social attention, praise or recognition. Many individuals with disabilities do not respond to secondary or social reinforcers, since they don’t actually function to provide reinforcement.
