A Player had an extreme reaction against using the cognitive training program. Should I make him continue?

At times, almost everyone will get frustrated or bored with an exercise. However, if a child has an extremely negative reaction (i.e., wets his/her pants, throws a major temper tantrum, etc.) this stress reaction may necessitate an evaluation, therapy or medication. The exercises should be discontinued until the problem is corrected. If the person is just having a “bad” day, then a short break may reduce her stress. Also, the reminder that failure to work will result in the loss of a prize (i.e., negative reinforcement) will often work to help the Player get “back on track.” Finally, sometimes allowing a person to play her favorite program will help her feel more confident and ready to proceed again with the protocol training exercises.
