  • Model example and non-examples of pleasant comments and ask the learner to determine whether they qualify as a pleasant comment (i.e., Hood et al., 2020)
  • Construct a list of phrases with the learner that she can use and type them out on a sheet a paper she may reference during practice (see Hood et al., 2020, also Yamamoto & Isawa, 2020)
  • Consider using a reinforcer that may be faded later (i.e., Grob et al., 2019)
