At Bierman Autism Centers, we believe parents are essential to their child’s success. We encourage parents to actively participate in their child’s therapy and work with our team to help their child reach their goals. Do you wonder how to get involved in your child’s ABA therapy?
Here are five ways parents can get involved in their child’s ABA therapy:
- Communicate with your child’s therapy team and set goals – Parents should communicate with their child’s therapy team of RBTs, BCBAs, Speech Language Pathologists, and Occupational Therapists regularly to ensure that they have a clear idea of what their child is working on and how they can help them achieve their goals. This helps create a unified therapy approach and ensures everyone works towards the same objectives.
- Attend therapy sessions and implement strategies at home – Parents can observe their child’s progress and the therapist’s techniques and strategies. This allows parents to reinforce those skills at home and create consistency between therapy sessions and home life. Using the same language and techniques therapists use during therapy sessions supports positive behaviors and encourages the child to continue working towards their goals.
- Connect with other parents at your child’s center – At our center, we organize events where parents can connect and share experiences. This can be a great way to get support from others going through the same experiences and learn new strategies from other parents. Follow us on Eventbrite or check out our Events page to stay up to date on our latest events.
- Communicate with others in your community and talk with them about being partners – Parents can help spread awareness about ABA therapy by sharing their experiences with others in their community. They can educate others about ABA therapy and its benefits and encourage them to get involved in helping children with autism. Check out this blog to learn about ways to get involved.
- Celebrate successes! It’s important to celebrate successes, no matter how small they may be. Parents should acknowledge and praise their child’s progress and hard work. This reinforces positive behaviors and encourages the child to continue working towards their goals. Little victories are so much sweeter and can make a big difference in a child’s life.
By working together with their child’s therapy team, parents can help their child achieve their goals and reach their full potential. At our ABA therapy centers, we believe every child deserves the chance to thrive, and we are committed to helping parents and children on this journey.
