Extinction Procedures with Challenging Behavior

In this episode of Autism Live, Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) Angela Persicke joins the program to discuss “extinction” procedures and their ability to address challenging behaviors in children with autism. A BCBA such as herself will address challenging behaviors by first examining the function of those behaviors, and then changing the response to those behaviors so as to not reinforce them.

They also talk about “extinction bursts” which are increases in undesired behavior as a response to failing to reinforce undesired behavior, as a person will try to test the limits of what behavior can get the desired result. Persicke discusses the necessity of continuing to respond with non-reinforcing behavior.
