More About Skill Acquisition
Teaching appropriate alternate skills to replace problem behavior is just as important as implementing behavior reduction strategies for the success of any behavior program. At Positive Behavior Services, we recognize the vital role that teaching appropriate alternate skills plays in helping children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) navigate their world more effectively. We understand that problem behaviors can often arise from a lack of communication skills which is why we emphasize the importance of skill acquisition to replace problem behaviors. By focusing on functional communication skills, we empower individuals with ASD to gain greater control over their behavior and enhance their overall quality of life.
When individuals learn and practice appropriate alternate functional communication skills, they acquire the tools they need to communicate their needs effectively. This enables them to engage in more positive and meaningful interactions with others. For example, teaching a child with ASD to use words, signs, pictures or a communication device, can significantly reduce frustration and problem behaviors associated with difficulty expressing themselves. These newfound skills will reduce problem behavior while increasing their ability to communicate.
Learning new skills as part of a skill-based treatment ABA not only provides practical benefits but also opens doors to new opportunities and experiences. By acquiring functional communication skills, individuals with ASD can gain access to the items and activities they want without engaging in problem behavior, such as self-care tasks, school tasks, and leisure activities. This will enhance your child’s overall quality of life.
