Parent-Caregiver Support & Training

In this training, we will discuss the need for parent training and the importance of including caregivers in the ABA program. Then, we will go over how to use a client service model. Additionally, we will discuss the concept of empathy and explain the parent’s reaction to an autism diagnosis. Furthermore, we will go over how to build rapport and establish credibility with caregivers. In this unit, we will also go over some possible challenges that you may encounter when training adults, as well as how to motivate caregivers to participate. Then, we will explain how to use behavioral skills training, or BST, to train caregivers in ABA methods to use with their child, as well as how to collect data on parental progress. Additionally, we will touch upon the caregiver’s response to training and situations in which you should reach out for help. Finally, we will briefly discuss the possible differences in funding source requirements regarding parent involvement in the ABA treatment program.
