Puzzle Reinforcer


Here is a quick tip to reinforce visual perceptual skills during a therapy session or anytime.  Each time the child completes a task or activity give him/her one puzzle piece.  Continue doing tasks and giving one puzzle piece each time.  When the entire activity is complete and if the puzzle is finished the child gets a prize.  Nice for group as well - the children can work together to complete a puzzle to get a reward.

This reward system encourages:
  • breaking down the skill into parts making it more manageable
  • visual perceptual skills
  • self satisfaction of completing the entire activity
