Parent education is a critical component of our services. We believe parents are essential to a child’s progress and that learning should not end when the Direct Interventionist leaves your home. Our partnership with parents optimizes each child’s treatment success and teaches their family a life- long set of practical skills that can be implemented at home on a day-to-day basis throughout the years. Services start with a Functional Behavior Assessment of targeted behaviors conducted across multiple environments and development of a Positive Behavior Support Plan.
Our highly skilled Parent Training Consultants teach families to use our competency based Parent Training Curriculum, providing tons of practice and helpful feedback. A few of the topics we teach include:
- Basics of ABA
- Teaching Self Help skills
- How to effectively intervene with challenging behaviors
- Teaching functionally equivalent replacement behaviors
- Utilizing natural teaching opportunities during daily routines to increase learning
BSP also offers parenting classes on a variety of relevant topics including toileting training, ensuring successful community visits, facilitating social interaction with playmates, etc.
