The Board Certified Behavior Analysts of Heal the World can provide you and any family member training on Applied Behavior Analysis principles, techniques, and procedures that are applied in our ABA sessions and are helpful for your child. Our goal is for your child to be able to perform the skills taught in a variety of situations, with different caregivers, and be able to maintain those skills and generalize them to new situations.
Our parent training begins with an observation at home by our BCBA to determine the behaviors of concern and priorities of the family. Some of the skills that we target during Parent Training include, but are not limited to:
- Requesting skills (i.e., Teaching parents how to run Mand trials and opportunities for their child to request preferred items/activities)
- Noncompliance (i.e., learning why your child engages in a particular behavior)
- Following direction skills (i.e., responding to their name, 1-step instructions, and cleaning up after they are done playing)
- Dealing with transitions
- Generalization of language skills learned during our sessions
We then provide parent training on an ongoing or as-needed basis.
We believe that parent training fosters less problem behaviors at home and faster acquisition and generalization of all the skills being targeted in your child’s ABA program.
