EIGHT-WEEK PARENT WORKSHOP
Incorporating Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) into Family Life
Nassau Suffolk Services for Autism (NSSA) is offering an 8-week workshop for parents and family members of children affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) that will provide answers and critical information on the following:
- What is ASD and how does it affect a child … and a family?
- What are the benefits of parent training -why do parents need to learn how to teach?
- What is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) and why does my child and family need it? – basic principles of ABA and how they can help in managing daily life
- Incidental teaching – seizing and creating learning opportunities throughout your day-to- day lives and
- Basic Problem Solving – how did we get here and what can we do to change and fix it?
- Siblings, schedules, and normal day to day chaos
- Common mistakes – how mixed messages and inconsistencies actually feed the very problems you are looking to
This 8-week training will be offered on Wednesday evenings from February 28 through April 17, 2024, from 7-9pm. We would like those who register to please be able to commit to all eight sessions. It is important that you attend all sessions to benefit fully from the workshop as each week’s class will build on prior weeks. Attendance by both parents is strongly recommended. As parents you are a crucial component to your child’s learning and progress. ASD does not end when the bell rings at the end of the school day and neither should learning. Please note that this workshop is ONLY being offered to parents and family members of children affected by ASD.
