Honestly, it depends. Every learner (human or animal) is different. As with most things, the more time you put into button teaching, the more you and your learner will likely get out of it. However, we often find that having all family members, including Junior Teachers, engaged in the process can expedite learning, especially if they are working in tandem with a parent. We do recommend being as consistent as possible in modeling and responding in the very early stages, especially the first week or so that your learner begins actively using the buttons. It’s important to understand that buttons are meant to be incorporated into your daily lifestyle and routine so it's more about forming new habits in your interactions with your learner than outlining rigorous teaching schedules.
