A primary goal of a behavioral skills assessment is to determine whether the lack of a specific behavioral response is due to a skill deficit (e.g., the individual has never emitted the behavior in the past, the behavior is not under appropriate stimulus control) or due to a motivational issue (i.e., the behavior is in the individual’s repertoire, but the current reinforcement contingencies are not setting the occasion for the behavior to occur).
