Parent Education programs can be part of an ABA program or stand alone programs.

  • Parent Education is always a part of our ABA programs.

  • Some families may not need a full ABA program but are facing a particular challenge that requires objective feedback and problem solving.

  • Short term and long term parent education programs are created based on the needs of the families.


Sessions take place in your home with your whole family.

  • A typical session includes:

    • talking with parents about current concerns and challenges and goals; what is and how would they like it to be

    • a family activity that most closely resembles end goal

    • problem solving and developing strategies with parents and other family members

    • identifying skill of the week to work on

    • role play and practice with the skill of the week

  • Sessions are typically 2 hours long.

  • Frequency of sessions is based on each family's needs.
