Parent Education

Parent Involvement is a core aspect of STEPS programming. BCBAs provide training to parents and caregivers on effective teaching strategies, including principles of applied behavior analysis, positive behavioral support strategies and self-help skills. The structure of parent training can also evolve and adapt in both topic and location to meet the changing needs of the family. BCBA’s might provide parent coaching in clinic, in home, or in the community where you experience the most challenges with your child. 

Some of the topics we may cover during parent coaching include but are not limited to:

  • Morning routines
  • Mealtimes
  • Evening Routines
  • Toilet Training
  • Compliance
  • Challenging Behavior
  • Community Outings
  • Supporting Play and Peer Interactions
  • Transitions
  • Communication
  • Generalization of skills
  • Advocating for my child
  • ABA Principles 
  • Positive Behavior Support (e.g. visuals, schedules, etc.)
