Do the kids on your school caseload follow group rules? Always do their homework? Probably not, and a post on the blog "If Only I Had Super Powers" has a sure-fire way to motivate both: "Positive Behavioral Incentives in Speech (aka Bribery)."
The clinician is the "banker" who holds the handmade "speech money." All the members of a treatment group earn $1 for each rule—dealing with safety, respect and responsibility—that the entire team follows during the session (up to $3). All team members can also earn $2 for returning their speech homework (unlimited amount if the impossible happened and everyone returned homework!).
The groups save their cash to buy a game party ($10), popcorn party ($50) or ice cream party ($75). Signs are posted all over the room to remind students of potential rewards.
