 Listen to Joe Wehby’s tips for using DRL in the classroom (time: 0:46). 

Again, a DRL is a nice strategy, particularly when you’re thinking about students who might show some of those early signs in the acting-out cycle of fidgeting, or talking out, or engaging in other activities that might be destructive to instruction that if you simply reprimanded might lead to an escalation, to a more serious form of behavior problem. A DRL will allow you to reduce the level of those very early signs to an acceptable point to where, then, the behavior can be managed on a less-frequent basis and one that would be acceptable and would match the levels of other students in the classroom and would meet the expectations of the teacher during that particular instructional period.
