Acceptable ABA Intervention

Use stimulus discrimination to teach Maggie when it is appropriate to engage in stereotypy vs. when it’s not.

Use a prompt to stop the stereotypy and then engage in short drills until three successes; Use a DRO to suppress the vocal stereotypy; Put the client in a room alone where she will not bother anyone while she works
More Trauma-Informed ABA Intervention

Ensure Maggie has a safe, neutral workspace in which she may engage in stereotypy without disrupting others who are working.

Conduct a competing stimulus assessment and provide continuous access to stimuli that make vocal stereotypy less probable (such as headphones); Try to determine what high rates of stereotypy occasion, such as anxiety, and then address that
