Types of fair and predictable consequences
Types of Fair and Predictable Consequences Consequences

  • Redirecting

  • Planned ignoring

  • Correction and overcorrection

  • Restitution

  • Response Cost – removing or withholding preferred activities

  • Time away

  • Time out


Guidelines of using reductive consequences p 67
Guidelines of using Reductive Consequences Consequences(p. 67)

  • Clarity for behaviour and consequences

  • Deliver the consequence – Do not threaten – Do!

  • Use for teaching – not for punishing

  • Be consistent- it is not the severity that is important it is the consistency

  • Be sensitive of how and when the consequence is delivered

  • Deliver in a matter of fact manner

  • Be aware of neurological factors that may hinder usefulness of consequences


Pitfalls of punishment p 68
Pitfalls of Punishment Consequences(p. 68)

  • Does not teach correct behaviour

  • May result in reduced self concept or belief as a “behaviour problem”

  • Consequences at school may be mild compared to experiences at home

  • Activities/people associated with punishment may become punishing


Giving corrective feedback school wide pg 50
Giving Corrective Feedback Consequences(School wide pg. 50)

  • Avoid delivering negative consequences in front of others

  • Describe behaviour – in calm nonjudgmental manner

  • Encourage student to describe behaviour that would have been more appropriate

  • Prompt with reminders (if necessary)

  • Ask them to commit to that positive behaviour

  • Thank them for their attention

D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour


Making restitution school wide pg 52
Making Restitution Consequences(School-wide pg. 52)

After having hurt others – consider a “caring menu” (in addition to or as an alternative to “sorry”

  • Write a note

  • Draw a picture

  • Help with project or chore

  • Share a book

  • Play a game

D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour


What is the problem with the following sequences? Consequences

  • Every time that Johnny is off task when the instructions are given the EA “Scolds him and then tells him what he is suppose to do.

  • Peter, who has Autism, sent out of the room whenever he becomes agitated

  • Betty gets into a verbal confrontation with Sally – she is sent to the principal’s office to work – during the time in the principal’s office she completes her homework

D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour

Suspensions and expulsions
Suspensions and Expulsions Consequences

Read Pages 55-57 in School-wide approach to recognize the Disadvantages of Expulsion

D.M. Souveny Understanding Student Behaviour


Remember
Remember… Consequences

The ratio of positive reinforcement delivered for good behaviours and through non-contingent attention should exceed the attention for problem behaviour by at least

4:1


Success summed up
Success Summed Up Consequences

  • Preparation = Prevention

  • Desired Behaviours must be taught and reinforced.

  • Undesired behaviours must be consistently followed by a reductive consequence
