We were delighted to be chosen to assist with the reviewing of the Radical Reward Chart (RRC).
This product is £14 which includes free delivery but the chart will be folded. For an extra £3.50, the RRC can be posted in a tube therefore no folds. We went for the free delivery option, and although there are folds, they are not noticeable once it's pinned flat to the wall.
There are six design options, and Amanda, the Managing Director, helpfully suggested that I ask Tristan to choose his own RRC to get him involved from the very beginning. All the designs are fun, colourful and educational, and look amazing when pinned to the wall. Tristan, who loves the outdoors, chose the Wacky Wildlife design.
A great way to personalise the RRC, is to use a laminated photo of the child as the reward counter which is a service they offer (or you can use their standard Carrot reward counter). Tristan loved seeing himself work his way up the chart! (RRC make a positive note that all photos are deleted from their computing systems after printing).
Tristan was very excited when his RRC arrived in the post, and was very helpful when deciding where in our home to pin it: we chose the back wall of our living room so easily seen, and pinned just high enough so Scarlett's little fingers couldn't reach.
Tristan took to the RRC very positively, and it was easy to get him to do his chores and behave nicely as he was very keen to go up a number! Amanda recommended a small treat upon reaching number ten (the halfway point) to keep Tristan encouraged, and a big treat when he reaches the top at number twenty.
The key to the RRC is to reinforce positive behaviour, and not to go down the RRC - the only way is up! We also made it a big deal when he went up the chart - letting him take his reward counter and moving it up, and reminding him of the good behaviour that led to going up the reward chart, with a high-five finale.
To me, the Unique Selling Points (USP) for the RRC are the colourful designs used (they are truly large beautiful art prints), and the option to personalise the reward counter with a laminated picture of the child.
On a side-note, it also helped strengthen Tristan's learning and recognition of numbers which is great timing as he starts school in September.
