Evidence-Based Practice Network - AM Session

Topic: Response Interruption and Redirection (RIRD)

Response Interruption and Redirection (RIRD) is an evidence based practice that involves the introduction of a prompt, comment, or other distractor when an interfering behavior is occurring. The distractor is designed to divert attention of the acting individual away from the behavior, resulting in its reduction. This intervention is predominantly used for behaviors that are stereotypical, repetitive, and/or self-injurious, and are not maintained by attention or escape. RIRD has been shown to be used effectively to address social, communication, play, school-readiness, and adaptive skills. Evidence shows that this EBP is highly successful when working with students in the following Developmental Domains and Age (years): http://www.captain.ca.gov/documents/EBP-chart-with...
