Why Parent Skill Training?
Our parent skill training series was developed to help parents decrease challenging behaviors in children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or other developmental disabilities and increase areas of skill deficit. The training will include an overview of applied behavior analysis (ABA) and will have parents practicing the implementation of proactive strategies and reactive strategies. Learning proactive strategies will help parents decrease the likelihood that problem behavior will occur. Learning reactive strategies will help parents learn the most effective and appropriate ways to respond to problem behavior. We will also be covering how to teach news skills as replacement behaviors; replacing the problem behavior with an appropriate and desired behavior.
There is also a class specifically related to autism spectrum disorders (ASD) that is offered in addition to the Parent Skill Training. This class focuses on the core characteristics of autism and treatment options.
Who Will Benefit from Parent Skill Training/ASD Class?
Parents, foster parents, caregivers, teachers, and anyone that works with a child with problem behaviors: physical aggression (e.g., hitting, kicking, biting, pulling hair), refusal behavior, property destruction, self-injurious behavior (SIB), and other behaviors that can interfere with learning new behaviors or disrupt everyday life.
Who Is Teaching the Classes?
All classes will be taught by a board certified behavior analyst (BCBA) or someone that is completing their master’s degree and is preparing to sit for the BCBA exam.
