Parent Support

Parental and caregiver involvement in ABA is vital to treatment success. Parents will learn more about their child’s ASD, behavior management techniques, and how to teach new skills. Moreover, parents provide important feedback about their child’s response to new strategies in other settings (such as the home and community). At ABA Connect, we use family-focused programming, which is critical to success. This means that we will consider the needs of the entire family in development of your child’s intervention program. Some of the ways in which we strive to be family-focused include:

  • Involving families in programming decisions
  • Providing therapy in the location that is most convenient for you and suits your family’s lifestyle and needs
  • Working with your insurance company to assist you in getting ABA coverage for your child (for ABA therapy only)
  • Providing regular feedback on your child’s progress through progress reports and team meetings

Community Outings

Families often struggle with children with ASD in public settings, such as the grocery store, restaurants, dentist appointments, play dates, etc. Your BCBA will work with you to develop interventions for navigating these community settings to ensure your child is successful. Support in community outings will include:

  • Watching your BCBA model the intervention in the public setting
  • Receiving support from your BCBA as you implement the intervention
  • Ongoing monitoring to ensure progress is maintained
