Teaching problem solving to increase academic, communications, and social skills

Abstract

Problem solving is defined as manipulating stimuli to increase the probability of arriving at a solution to a problem. When given a problem, such as a question that involves recalling a
past event, an individual arrives at a solution by engaging in a few possible behaviors, such as asking herself questions, drawing out possible solutions, and visualizing. A challenge of
analyzing problem solving is it often occurs covertly, or within an individual’s skin. Although typically developing people engage in problem solving on a daily basis, there is limited research on teaching problem solving strategies to individuals with disabilities, especially in a behavior analytic framework. Two potential benefits of teaching problem solving skills to children with disabilities are less rote responding and more generalization. In this presentation, the presenter will provide a conceptual analysis of problem solving and review previous research on using problem solving to teach academic, communication, and social skills. The presenter will also describe a current study on teaching problem solving to help children with autism recall past events, and he will recommend directions for research and practice.


Learning​ ​Objectives:

At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Define problem solving from a behavior analytic perspective
  • Explain how problem solving was taught in previous studies
  • Describe avenues for studying and using problem solving in research and practice
