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.
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!!!
