Behavioural Therapy will be used to modify faulty learning. 

The techniques can be any one of the following: 

1. Negative reinforcement: refers to following an undesired response with an outcome that is painful or not liked 

2. Positive reinforcement: is given to increase the desired behavior. 

3. Token Economy: Persons with behavioural problems can be given a token as a reward every time a wanted behaviour occurs. The tokens are collected and exchanged for a reward such as an outing for the patient or a treat for the child. 

4. Differential Reinforcement: Unwanted behaviour can be reduced and wanted behaviour can be increased simultaneously.
