Parents Offering Token Items During Check Out/Transition

Post Series: Ethics Scenario Archive


A team is looking for insight on how to handle parents offering dinner and other token items during check out/transition out of service session (especially how a BCBA would coach a RBT to handle this in the moment)?


  • Explanation of appreciation but limitations that exist to accept


  • Make sure message is firm but respectful; establish mutual trust, prime the situation


  • Many of these families feel eternally indebted to us, we need to acknowledge their thankfulness and redirect this – illustrate your own values “the best gift for me is for you to be here and be present and participate on this journey with me” etc.
