Non-Compliant Behavior

Parent’s and teachers alike agree that

one of the most frustrating

behavior problems to address with

children is non-compliance.

what is non compliance
What is Non-Compliance?

Put simply, non-compliance is an

unwillingness to follow through with a

directive given by another person. On

many occasions the person giving the

directive is a person in a position of


what causes non compliance
What causes Non-Compliance?

Many things can cause a child to exhibit non-compliant behavior, but

the three most common causes would be:

1. Young children may be going through a developmental phase where

they are exercising their autonomy, and testing the authority of adults.

2. Some children have a history of poor relationships with adults and

do to resentment feel they don’t have to comply with adults requests.

3. Sometimes adults fail to consistently make children follow through

with directives early on, and the child learns they don’t necessarily

have to comply.

how do we address non compliance
How do we address non- compliance?

We address non-compliance by teaching

children to be compliant.

We can teach compliance using a method

called Errorless Compliance Training.

compliance training getting started
Compliance TrainingGetting Started

With paper and pen sit down and think about the child’s behavior.

1. Make a list of 4-5 things that the child will do for you without

question when asked. This could be things such as: give you a hug,

retrieve a fork or spoon, get you some milk out of the refrigerator.

We will call these “high probability requests”

2. Make a second list of 4-5 things the child will do for you, but

typically result in whining, fussing, repeated prodding. This could

be things such as brushing teeth, getting clothes ready for tomorrow,

going to bed on time. We will call these “moderate probability requests”.

Now make a third list of 4-5 things that you know the child will not do,

regardless of how many times you ask, beg, or plead. These could

include, cleaning the bedroom, doing homework, taking out the trash,

doing laundry, coming home on time. We will call these “low probability

Take your list of high probability requests, and over the next week ask

the child frequently throughout the day to complete some of those

tasks. Make your request and promptly walk away.

*Make sure you have the child’s attention when making your request

(turned toward you, making eye contact, and listening).

It is critical that when you ask the child to do something that you ask

in a firm, but polite manner.

If the child complies with your directive, immediately give the child lots

of praise and attention for complying.

If the child fails to comply with your request, do not immediately make

the same request again, as this could lead to a power struggle between

yourself and the child, which could escalate into an argument.

Wait awhile (15 to 20 minutes) then approach the child and make a

request to do a different high probability task. If the child complies,

provide praise and attention immediately. Wait awhile, and then

request that they do the task they did not follow through with

The following week continue throughout the day to

frequently make high probability requests of the child.

However, on occasion ask the child to do a task from your

moderate probability list. If they comply, provide

immediate praise and attention for complying.

If they fail to comply follow the steps detailed on the

previous slide.

During the second week continue to mix high and

moderate level requests.

On the third week continue with high and moderate level

requests, but occasionally sneak in a Low Probability

request. If the child complies, immediately provide lots

of praise and attention, tell them how proud you are of

If the student fails to comply with the Low

Probability request, follow the steps

described in the previous slides. i.e., back

off for a period of time and return to

Moderate or Low Probability requests.

If the methods described in this training are implemented

correctly and consistently everyday, you should see a

significant change in the child’s level of compliance

within a month.

Remember that you will need to provide numerous

opportunities throughout the day to train compliance.

Three or four times per day is not sufficient to change

a behavior that has become ingrained over time.

Why do we need to teach compliance?

Simply, over the course of a child’s lifetime they will be

asked thousands of times to do things they may not want

to do. By teaching children compliance at an early age, we

are arming them with a valuable skill that will be of great

benefit to them throughout adulthood.
