Parents Q&A – Teach children to self-monitor on their own behavior

Parent’s concern: My child is now 6 years old and is diagnosed with ASD. We use ABA token economy with him at home, however, he doesn’t understand how to self-monitor himself. He needs more approval for everything he does. How can I teach him to be more independent?
Teaching children how to self-monitor on their own behavior is important, meaning they don’t need to rely on other people to monitor them and tell them what they are doing is good and delivering them the rewards. This is a much higher level program and let’s see how we train the children on this.
