As brand new TAGteacher I was worried sick about reinforcers. What I could use in my class? With my son? With my clients? As my experience was building up, I've discovered that Success was the greatest reinforcer. I’ve started to think about that when I started my archery practice. My coach was tagging me and I was happy with results: I didn’t need candies or other tangible reinforcers to keep practicing (Which I'm still doing after 4 years). Three years ago I’ve started to work in special education and to my surprise my students with “great disabilities" preferred success and good instructions to stickers. Finally I prepared a TAGteach presentation with my son Alessandro. He has been my first tag learner and the main reason I’ve got involved with TAGteach in the first place. Working with him, I’ve discovered that Alessandro shares a great knowledge about learning with TAGteach and the importance of Success as reinforcer.
