Learn More About Let’s Make a Contract

Jill C. Dardig, Professor Emerita of Education at Ohio Dominican University, and 
William L. Heward, Professor Emeritus in the College of Education and Human Ecology at Ohio State University

In this podcast, Drs. Jill Dardig and William L. Heward discuss their new book, Let’s Make a Contract. Contracts are particularly useful for children on the autism spectrum, who benefit from understanding clear expectations and receiving positive feedback and rewards.

In their interview, they discuss key elements of a behavior contract:

  • What a behavior contract is
  • How long a behavior contract should last
  • Common mistakes made with behavior contracts, and how to avoid negativity when mistakes are made
  • How contracts can benefit children, parents, families, school settings, and self goals
