Having worked in a classroom for a while, I found the value of reinforcing positive behavior to be of immense help. With too many negative consequences, children and adults stop responding. Having iReward on your iPhone is an extremely helpful tool. Instead of trying to memorize various behaviors and their rewards or punishments, iReward will note everything for you, and will allow you to show daily progress to the one being monitored. Motivational techniques work with a variety of children: those with autism, developmental delays, ADHD, oppositional defiance disorder and more. Yet such techniques also benefit adults: in the workplace for a job well done, or a project completed on time. In the prison system or rehab facilities, various motivational techniques are also used to positively change the behaviors of the inmates. So you can see, the opportunities for altering behavior to a more acceptable type are endless. With iReward, you choose the behavior that you are trying to reinforce, choose your reward, then choose the number of times the behavior needs to be completed before the reward is earned. Snap a picture to provide extra motivation on the upcoming prize, or reminders about the goal to be completed. Now for the fun part... Simply tap a star on the Reward screen when the behavior is attained. You have an option in the iReward Settings to have your stars turn either red, gold, into a smiley face or a checked box to provide age appropriate visibility. If, unfortunately, a child regresses in his behavior, you may remove a star by tapping it. A well thought-out feature to me is the password lock within the app that will allow the child to see his progress without deleting or changing any valuable reward or behavioral information. In fact, the entire app is very comprehensive in its behavior modification techniques. Train up your child the right way, using iReward to effectively achieve the best results possible.

"iReward is a fun and useful app. Use it with your spouse, kids or anyone for whom you want to provide some positive reinforcement."

--OS and Age Rating:  This app requires OS 3.0 or later. Rated 4+.
--Tip: When viewing a reward, you can double tap to clear all, or to revert to the initial number.
