"Highlight for me from Martha’s autism course series: in the first, the tagging of the child showing his eyes above the table. Also Douglas’ five lessons and demonstrating impracticalities of primary reinforce delivery with the funny doughnut delivery. The issue of schedules of reinforcement, which is so tricky to get right, was dealt with beautifully in three. Those tantrum videos and the exercise of tagging quiet mouth in three was great. I LOVED the ice skater woman saying ‘Pleasure to do business with you’ in four to the little boy. This sums up EVERYTHING that TAGteach is about! The labels the ice skaters wore to collect tokens/marks, was a stroke of genius.."
