Response interruption/redirection (RIR) is used to decrease interfering behaviors, predominantly those that are repetitive, stereotypical, and/or self-injurious. RIR is often implemented after a functional behavior assessment (FBA) has been conducted to identify the potential cause(s) of an interfering behavior. RIR is particularly useful with persistent, interfering behaviors that occur in the absence of other people, in different settings, and during a variety of tasks. This module will provide information on RIR and the steps needed to implement this evidence-based intervention.
