School-Based Intervention Idea from www.interventioncentral.org

Focus: DEFIANCE / NON-COMPLIANCE

Reward Alternative (Positive) Behaviors  (Mayer & Ybarra, 2004; Walker, Colvin, & Ramsey, 1995)

The instructor can shape positive behaviors by selectively calling on the student or providing other positive attention or incentives only when the student is showing appropriate social and academic behaviors.

The teacher withholds positive attention or incentives when the student misbehaves or does not engage in academics.
