Parent Training

 

Mestre Behavior Development offers training to parents of children receiving one-to-one verbal behavior therapy in our early intervention clinic. We train parents to use the techniques and procedures we apply during therapy to reduce problem behavior and/or increase appropriate behaviors at home or in the community.

Parent training leads to more confident parents, less problem behaviors at home and faster acquisition and generalization of language and social skills targeted in the child’s verbal behavior program. The following are examples of problem behaviors/target behaviors often worked on with parent training:

 

• Noncompliance

• Generalization of language skills learned at our clinic
• Child responding to his/her name
• On-task behavior/task completion (this can be applied to homework)
• Following directions
• Child having difficulty accepting “no”
• Child experiencing difficulty with transitions

 

One of the supervising behavior analysts (BCBA/BCaBA) who is familiar with the child’s verbal behavior program and mastered skills will conduct a parent training intake with the family. This is used to determine the behaviors of concern and priorities of the family to be targeted through the parent training. This service is meant to compliment the progress a child makes with our verbal behavior program and our goal is to create more learning opportunities and consistency across environments.
