If you have a toddler who roots themselves to the spot when you need them to move along, Behaviour Momentum is a great way to shift them.  Behaviour Momentum is basically an application of “Simon Says”.   We start by getting them to copy some of our movements.


For example:


Do this (clap your hands) They copy you.

Do this (tap your head) They copy you.

Do this (stamp your feet) They copy you.

Do this (sing a song and stamp your feet) They copy you

Do this (sing a song and start moving quickly towards your destination). Typically, they should follow you. If you also have a reinforcer with you, it is very likely they will follow!!!
