Description

Everybody likes a visual reinforcement system. Using this app, you can let someone know what he’s working for, how much work he needs to do, and how close he is to earning a reward for that work. You can use this for lessons in school, chores at home, getting your children to eat their vegetables, and much more! Start the app by selecting the number of tokens (1-5) your student must earn. Then set up your student's reinforcer choice board by selecting 1-6 items from our pre-loaded symbol library or your own photo library. To delete a picture from the teacher choice screen just press down on an image for 5 seconds. Show the choice board to your student to select what to work for and then begin your lesson. Each time a student earns a token, slide a token to the empty dot. Once the student has earned all of his tokens, push the "cash in" button to show your student what he's earned! The token board resets to start the next deal or you can create a new choice board for your student to select a new reinforcer.

This app is now available in American English and Brazilian Portuguese. To enable Brazilian Portuguese please make sure your Apple device is set to use Portuguese as its main language via Settings->General->International.

Working 4 it Works

Mom the professional

Working 4 it is a great app for programming needs that include a token reinforcement system. I am a special educator and a mother of a child with special needs, so I have used this app in both home and school settings. I appreciate the personalization capability that this app offers- in addition to the several preloaded options, I have uploaded pictures of specific reinforcer for both my daughter and I individual students at school. The thing I would like to see added is a function to add textbook the uploaded pictures of reinforcers. I like that this is one less thing that we have to carry around and keep track of- I have lost so many tokens in the past...it drove me crazy! This is also nice for my students because it is discrete, they have an iPad with their programming materials accessible but private....They look like any other Kid! We have had success using this app at home with my daughter - it is great for bedtime and morning routine...and anything else that we need a little extra motivation to get done.

Wow!!

This app has completely turned around one of my student behaviors!! He has autism and would disrupt sessions on a regular basis. Introduced this app one session and WOW! Now, before we leave his class, he is in line, hands to himself, facing forward, and quietly waiting for his friends to follow suit. He tells: "I want work for stars". Such a breathe of fresh air. He is able to have my phone during sessions so that he may "get a star" for goal progression, positive behavior, social interAction, etc. He LOVES it, and because he does, so do I!!!

Great app

This is a great app. Quick set up and easy to use. Very motivating for students. Suggestion for future versions- have a section to save certain boards for specific student use along with a data collection tool running in the background that would give a report of how many times the student did earn the reward/how many opportunities, which reward each student preferred, etc.
