Requesting Speech Therapy Request Reinforcer Special Education | ABLLS F4


⭐Working with speech and language therapy students on making requests? How about students with autism or other disabilities and in special education that are learning to ask questions? This simple activity teaches a student, using audio and Boardmaker™ icons, how to request when asked “What do you want?” This teaches the student how to access positive reinforcement using verbal or symbol language (PECS™). It also helps promote asking for help! This resource includes digital Boom Cards™ and a Google Slides™ file plus a print-and-assemble flipbook with the same targets. The printable includes a simple data collection page, too!

This activity aligns with ABLLS™ F4 Requesting when asked “What do you want?”. ABLLS-R® trademark is a registered trademark of Behavior Analysts, Inc.
