Motor stereotypy can be challenging to decrease due to the function of the behavior to be automatically reinforcing. It can compete with other reinforcers within the client’s environment. A multiple schedule entails allowing the client to engage in motor stereotypy during certain periods of time. For instance, during a break. A red card is used to signal when the student cannot engage in motor stereotypy. A green card is used to signal when the client can engage in motor stereotypy. When motor stereotypy is unavailable, a DRA (differential reinforcement of alternative behavior) is introduced. During a DRA, the client is prompted to engage in an appropriate alternative behavior. Reinforcement is provided for engaging in the appropriate alternative behavior.
