Applied Behavior Analysis or ABA is a valuable strategy for helping children with autism better manage their day to day experiences in a way that minimizes their stress or discomfort. But while ABA therapy focuses on children and developing their skill sets, the involvement of parents is an important part of a child’s success. Here’s why.
Collaborate with Your Child’s ABA Therapist
As much as an ABA therapist will closely assess your child and develop a treatment plan that’s customized to their needs, your input is valuable. Parent observations are crucial to building a workable approach to learning that your child is comfortable with.
Help Your Child Practice New Skills
It’s only through practice that your child can truly gain new skills and be able to use them confidently. Practicing what your child learns in the clinical setting while at home or out in the community offers real-world experience and also signals that you believe what they’re learning is important– an important motivator for some children.
Ensure Your Child’s Attendance
Families are busier than ever before, and between work, school, sports and other obligations, it can be tempting to skip the occasional therapy session at the ABA clinic. Every missed treatment threatens the progress made up until that point, so sticking to the schedule is vital.
