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.
