Autism and Motivation:
Essential Skills for
Teaching Children With ASD

As a parent or teacher of a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), you may encounter difficulties when dealing with autism and motivation. You may be attempting to teach someone how to learn new skills or complete challenging tasks. At Blue Parachute, we offer autism home support services in the form of videos based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy. These videos were created by Licensed and Certified Behavior Therapists, and they can help teach essential skills for motivating and teaching children with ASD.

How Can Reinforcement Be Used to Motivate Children with Autism?

One of the most effective ways to motivate children with ASD is positive reinforcement. The likelihood of a behavior being repeated is greater because the person knows that they did something good. By providing rewards for positive behaviors, such as completing a task or using appropriate social skills, you can increase the likelihood of those behaviors being repeated. Our videos can teach you about using positive reinforcement effectively and provide examples of different types of rewards that can be used.

What Are Prompting Strategies

So – what are prompting strategies, and how can they be used for autism and motivation, and to teach essential skills? Prompting strategies involve using cues or reminders to assist a child with learning a new skill. Our videos can teach you how to use different types of prompts, such as verbal cues or physical guidance, to help your child learn new skills. We also offer strategies for fading out prompts as your child becomes more proficient in a particular skill.

How to Help a Child With Challenging Behaviors

Motivating a child with challenging behaviors can be especially difficult. Our videos have the essential information you need when it comes to autism and motivation. The videos we have in our library can provide you with essential skills for identifying the underlying causes of these behaviors and developing effective strategies for addressing them. We can also teach you how to use positive reinforcement and other motivating techniques to encourage your child to engage in more positive behaviors.

Asking Your Child to Complete a Difficult Task

Completing a difficult task can be overwhelming for children with ASD, but with the right teaching strategies, it can be done. Our videos offer essential skills for breaking down complex tasks into smaller, more manageable steps. We can also teach you how to use prompting strategies and positive reinforcement to motivate your child and make the learning process more enjoyable.
