Why do parent training?

In short, to improve your child’s behaviour and create calm. Multiple academic studies show that parents trained in ABA effectively improve their child’s behaviour. And who wouldn’t want that!

The common misconception is that ‘parent’ and ‘training’ in the same sentence implies a lack of education or knowledge. Our experience is that parents of children with autism are some of the most highly informed and highly educated folk we know. 

So rather than educating or informing, ABA parent training deals with the practicalities of autism. It shows how to respond proactively and tactically to your child’s behaviours, traits, and patterns. And it helps you respond in a way that works for you, while simultaneously aiding their development. 

ABA parent training is about learning specific techniques to deal with everyday issues: tantrums, non-compliance, absconding, hitting. It’s about gaining skills to help your child with toilet-training, eating, anxiety, sensory overload. It’s about learning different and distinctive ways of communicating so your child’s needs (and yours) can be met. 

And with three delivery methods, there’s an ABA parent training session to suit your circumstances.

    First Steps for Parents is a course for parents who are on a waitlist to access services and/or who are wanting to learn more about practical evidence-based support strategies for use at home.

    This course has been specifically designed for parents who are looking for practical strategies to use to support their child at home and in community settings. An initial full-day will be led by a skilled facilitator and will focus on strategies that you can use to support your child’s communication and language development, teach daily living skills (like bathing, eating, and dressing), and prevent and respond to behaviours of concern. A few weeks later, a shorter session gives you the opportunity to ask questions and receive more advice on how to support your child using the strategies introduced in the workshop.

    Topics such as Understanding and using positive reinforcement, Breaking skills down for teaching, Prompting to support learning, Thinking functionally about behaviour will be covered during the full day course.
