why you cannot try something like this

textArea.text =  label.text + NEXT_STR;
textArea.scrollPosition = textArea.maxScrollPosition;

Enter text into TextField and press ENTER

private function onChange(event:Event):void{
      txtArea.text += txtInput.text + "\n";
      txtArea.verticalScrollPosition = txtArea.maxVerticalScrollPosition;
     txtInput.text = "";
      <mx:TextInput id="txtInput" enter="onChange(event)"/>
      <mx:TextArea id="txtArea"/>

In this case you just need to use scrollToRange function

private function onChange(event:Event):void{
    txtArea.text += txtInput.text + "\n";
    txtInput.text = "";
      <s:TextInput id="txtInput" enter="onChange(event)"/>
      <s:TextArea id="txtArea" height="100"/>
