Training Parents for Parent-Led ABA Therapy

At Just Parent, we recognize the paramount role of the parent-child relationship in the development of every child. This significance is amplified when a child has been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

For parents, getting actively involved in their child's development can significantly strengthen the bond between them. An effective way for parents to participate in their child's growth is by implementing teaching procedures at home while applying Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy.

Just Parent specializes in empowering parents through ABA intervention and parent training, which equips them to seamlessly incorporate ABA therapy within the comfort of their own home, thereby helping their child achieve their developmental goals.

Beginning your ABA journey

The journey following an ASD diagnosis can be overwhelming for parents, often leaving them feeling unprepared or uncertain about how best to support their child. Navigating complex behaviors and situations can be particularly challenging.

Many parents are eager to participate in their child's therapy but may lack the knowledge and tools to do so effectively. Parent training serves as an essential bridge, allowing parents and caregivers to actively engage in their child's intervention and gain valuable insights into handling specific behaviors at home.

Parent actively engaging with their child in an activity

Through parent training, our program educates parents and caregivers about the underlying reasons for certain behaviors, how to identify triggers, and, most importantly, how to manage these situations. This training also equips parents and caregivers with the skills necessary to support their child in acquiring new skills, ultimately fostering a stronger and more meaningful bond.

Settling into a consistent routine

Consistency in care methods is pivotal for children diagnosed with ASD, both during formal therapy sessions and daily interactions with their caregivers. Active parental involvement is a critical element for creating positive changes in their child's behavior and skill acquisition. However, it's often observed that, in clinical settings, parent training is offered only sparingly, typically for a few hours per month.

At Just Parent, we recognize the significance of parent-led behavioral intervention in enhancing skill acquisition and minimizing difficult behaviors within the home environment. We understand the stress parents and caregivers may experience when they lack the tools to manage their child's behaviors effectively.

Through our parent training program, our Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) deliver comprehensive instructions, guidance, and feedback to parents, empowering them to implement behavioral interventions with their children.

Research has shown that parent-led ABA is as effective, in some cases more effective than in-person clinician-led therapy. Additionally, studies have shown that parent-led ABA has resulted in a 93% decrease in challenging behaviors and a remarkable 67% increase in skill acquisition.

Including parents in ABA therapy is central to success

Traditionally, parent training is offered for just a few hours per month within clinical settings. However, we believe that its role in a child's progress is pivotal. That's why Just Parent extends parent-led ABA through telehealth, providing parents and caregivers with the tools and knowledge needed to carry out treatments confidently at home.

With Just Parent, parents gain access to a comprehensive curriculum that guides them in working with their child on a wide range of skills. Parents have the flexibility to choose the skills they wish to focus on, and we provide the necessary guidance for successful implementation at home. We offer unlimited direct text message access to a BCBA, enabling parents to receive real-time coaching and assistance for any questions or issues they may encounter. Furthermore, your family has weekly telehealth ABA sessions with a BCBA to ensure that everything is progressing smoothly within the home environment.

At Just Parent, we understand the significance of parent-led ABA and its impact on a child's development. We are committed to providing parents with the support, knowledge, and tools necessary to become effective advocates for their child's growth and success.
