Using Response Interruption and Redirection to Reduce Vocal Stereotypy
Sheehey, Patricia H.; Wells, Jenny C.
Intervention in School and Clinic, v53 n3 p171-176 Jan 2018
Response interruption and redirection, commonly referred to as RIR, is an evidence-based intervention that has been demonstrated to quickly reduce moderate to high levels of vocal stereotypy in children with autism spectrum disorder. The RIR intervention is a simple, three-step procedure that can be embedded in classroom instruction with minimal planning. This column describes the procedure and provides a troubleshooting guide to aid practitioners in effectively implementing the RIR behavior management strategy.
