Coping with Problem Behavior in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Presenter: Lauren Moskowitz, Ph.D. Assistant Professor. Department of Psychology, St. John's University.

Problem behaviors commonly occur in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other developmental disabilities. In this presentation, attendees will learn how to figure out the function or purpose of a child’s problem behavior and then a) prevent the problem behavior from occurring by altering a setting event or antecedent (e.g., prevention strategies), b) provide a response alternative to the problem behavior (e.g., teach replacement skills to replace the problem behavior) or c) change a consequence (e.g., response strategies), so that the problem behavior is less likely to occur in the future.

Como afrontar el comportamiento problemático en los niños con trastorno del espectro autista

Presentador (a): Lauren Moskowitz, Ph.D. Profesor Asistente. Departamento de Psicología, Universidad de St. John’s


Los comportamientos problemáticos ocurren comúnmente en niños con Trastorno del Espectro Autista (TEA) y otras discapacidades del desarrollo. En esta presentación, los asistentes aprenderán cómo averiguar la función o propósito del comportamiento, para así poder: a) prevenir el problema de conducta que se produzcan mediante la alteración o ajuste de un evento antes de ocurrir el comportamiento problemático (por ejemplo, las estrategias de prevención), b) proporcionar una alternativa de respuesta a la conducta problemática (por ejemplo, enseñar habilidades de reemplazo para reemplazar el comportamiento problemático) o c) cambiar una consecuencia (por ejemplo, las estrategias de respuesta), para que el comportamiento problema ocurra con menos frecuencia en el futuro.
