Positive Practice Overcorrection

In this consequence-based strategy, when a student emits a maladaptive behavior, they are then required to perform the alternative acceptable behavior again and again. For example, a student that throws paper on the floor might be required to practice walking to the trash can to throw away trash several times in a row. The intent is to reduce or punish the maladaptive behavior so it occurs less often after the positive practice overcorrection procedure.
