1.         Provide immediate feedback and consequences

2.         More frequent feedback

3.         Use incentives over punishment

4.         Reinforcers need to be short-term

5.         Act, don’t fuss – give the consequence and move on

6.         Pay positive attention too – every interaction cannot be negative

7.         Don’t threaten what you don’t intend to enforce

8.         Help see how the information is relevant outside the classroom

9.         Limit the amount of instructions given at one time

10.       Provide as much stimulus as possible
