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
