Abstract: The 7 Steps to Instructional Motivation have been a staple approach to the process of building a positive teaching relationship for children on the Autism Spectrum.

This is the goal with teaching children with ASD but it is also the goal of teaching any child. Many children who are not diagnosed with Autism or any other related disorder can also develop quite challenging problem behavior. The ability of parents and teachers to develop positive fun, teaching relationships with these children that are both motivating and reinforcing to Child and Parent. In my practice, the 7 Steps have proven just as invaluable a tool for this population.
