We recognize that family members with ASD children in their homes can feel confused and frustrated as well. That is why we feel that training for parents is critical to a successful ABA therapeutic program. Our therapy is done in the home and can provide a parent with a better understanding of Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Training also allows parents the opportunity to better understand their child’s specific behaviors. This understanding offers the best possible environment for a child to develop healthy responses with social interactions in a variety of settings.
This training also allows a parent to feel more in control of their child’s situation. Interacting with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder child presents challenges to the traditional adult/child relationship in the home. With proper training, a parent is able to follow the established teaching methods that encourage positive behavior. It also helps to prevent a child’s parent from applying the wrong methods.
The success of our home program is greatly improved when a parent is properly trained. Establishing a treatment will have limited results if that treatment is applied consistently. Parents play a critical role in their child’s behavioral development, and parent training offers an opportunity for family members to become involved.
A trained parent becomes our therapist’s partner that is able to provide valuable feedback and interpretations of events as they happen. The trained parent is able to provide accurate information as well as teaching. This will allow our staff members to better assess behaviors and gives us the ability to modify treatment in a way that continues to provide positive results.
The key to a therapy such as ABA is consistency. Providing uniform learning helps to reinforce the desired behaviors we are looking for. Trained parents are more situationally aware and can intervene on behalf of a child who may be receiving confusing messages from others in their life. Our patient’s parents can educate other family members, friends, neighbors, and school personnel while better understanding the feedback that these individuals will provide.
Pairing ABA therapy with parental training will also improve family interactions and relationships. Parental training creates a therapeutic relationship that can lessen the frustration that a child may feel in the home. Parents with training are more aware and understanding of their child’s behaviors and needs. Simply put, training allows a parent and ASD child the opportunity to bond more.

How It Works?Research over the last 40+ years has shown the efficacy of ABA Therapy for individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Our services begin with an intake consultation with a member of our administrative team. This is a time where families are able to discuss primary areas of concern and determine if ABC can meet their needs.
During this process our team will determine eligibility for services and navigate the insurance process for you. You will be asked to fill out an application, provide proof of medical diagnosis of Autism spectrum disorder, provide a prescription for ABA Therapy services, and provide proof of insurance.
The next step is to assess your child’s skill level, which is necessary to guide the development of an individualized Autism treatment plan. The assessment will be conducted by a licensed Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and will include the use of various assessment tools. Typically, assessments are conducted in the home setting. However, arrangements can be made to conduct the assessment in an area that best suits your family’s needs.
Through assessment in everyday situations such as home and school, behaviors are targeted and a detailed therapy plan is developed. Throughout the treatment, data is recorded and analyzed in order to show progress of meaningful change and to evaluate, modify, and refine treatment for the most socially significant outcomes.
