Positive Practice Overcorrection – A form of positive punishment in which a learner, after a misbehavior, performs the “correct form” of the behavior, OR a behavior incompatible with the misbehavior for a few times. For example, a student will simply stand up and walk out of the classroom when he needs to use the restroom. For this procedure, the student may be required to raise his hand to gain the teacher’s attention first, the teacher asking the student what he wants to say, then the teacher instructing the student to raise his hand once again, and again, before giving the student permission to use the restroom.
April is Autism Awareness Month and an excellent opportunity to promote and draw attention to the tens of thousands facing an autism diagnosis each year. #lightitupblue
