Some children spit at adults when angry or not getting their way. It is a behavior that cannot be ignored. Engaging in discussion about this behavior is a proactive first step in eliminating the behavior. Combine your discussion with a coupon reward for situations where the student demonstrates self control or practices self control, and/or a token chart for self control during activities in class. These can also be used as an immediate reward when the student practices a strategy you are teaching. For example: you may encourage "belly breaths" when angry or frustrated. If the student does belly breaths when prompted, apply a token to the chart as the child watches or give a coupon. Such an immediate positive reward may help change the mood, will clearly support the replacement/preferred behavior, and will give you an easy system for collecting data! And hang some related posters in your time out space.
All of these tools are included in this product.
