(Part of the PRO-ED Series on How to Manage Behavior)
How to Use Positive Practice, Self-Correction, and Overcorrection, Third Edition explains effective behavior management techniques for students with developmental disabilities, intellectual disability, and/or emotional disorders.
Positive practice is the systematic, repeated practice of a corrected behavior in order to interrupt an undesirable behavior and replace it with a desired behavior. Self-correction and overcorrection require the student to correct his/her behavior and then overcorrect as a sort of compensation to the person(s) affected by the negative behavior. These practices replace any need for punishment or guilt on the part of the student.
Exercises and illustrations included show the use of these procedures. Bibliographic and further-reading references are included.
