Token Behavior System

How it works: Student selects a reinforcer to work for. Student earns “tokens” for demonstrating desired behaviors. Once all of the tokens are earned, student receives reinforcer and systems starts over again.

Pros: emphasis on positive behavior, teacher can control pace of earning tokens

Cons: once tokens are earned they should not be taken away, providing time for certain reinforcement can be hard to schedule
