Learning colors using ABA therapy

The goal here was to have him to sit and follow directions and receive positive reinforcement in the form of his favorite snack. My job is to help direct him (pointing to what I want from him when he's frustrated) and to ignore wrong answers and negative behaviors. This video shows the second attempt. The first attempt was disastrous for the both of us but towards the end we both got better so I wanted to get him on tape. Notice how he actually could identify some colors towards the end. I promise you he could not do this before the session!! He's so smart!
