The Nebraska ASD Network is committed to providing up-to-date information and training based on current research about autism spectrum disorders. Which consists of workshops that are scheduled throughout the state on a variety of subjects and several websites that offer on-line training opportunities related to autism spectrum disorders.
The 2018-2019 Tri-State Webinar Series offers a wide variety of content. Webinars are live on the dates and times posted on the flyer. All webinars are recorded and archived on our site after the initial airing. This allows you to watch all content later as well!
The purpose of using reinforcement is to increase the frequency of a desired behavior occurring again under similar situations. As such, a reinforcer is the consequence of a behavior, leading to future occurrence. Positive reinforcement means the presentation of a consequence increases a behavior whereas negative reinforcement removes a negative stimulus to increase the occurrence of a behavior.
The Nebraska Autism Spectrum Disorders Network and partners have created these strategies and approaches for helping people on the autism spectrum.
