- This study is an attempt to reduce the behavior of hyperactivity indicated by the behavior of always moving and pacing back and forth through a time-out strategy and procedure the tenth grade students of SLB Autism YPPA Padang. The approach used in this study was a Single Subject Research (SSR) with the design of "A-B-A". The results of the study showed that, based on the six observations and interviews (each done within at least eight minutes) as well as the intervention on five observations; it was found that the behavior of pacing back and forth performed by student X decreased with the duration of 4 minutes. At the baseline condition after intervention (A2) where the observation was done four times, it was found that the behavior of pacing back and forth performed by student X was getting better with the lowest duration of 2 minutes. Therefore, the researcher suggests using the strategy and procedure of time-out in reducing children's hyperactivity behavior. Besides, teachers and other researchers are suggested to apply it to other students with autism.
