ABA Training for Parents
ABA Training for L4Life Parents
A parent’s ability to interact as effectively as possible with their child is crucial to their own wellbeing as well as their child’s. For this reason, we strive to equip our parents with theoretical and practical ABA knowledge, so they can apply it in their therapists’ absence and after the end of their child’s program.
Conducted by our program supervisors over three hours, this training demonstrates the teaching process and behaviour management skills we use in our Early Intensive Behavioural Intervention (EIBI) ABA programs: our Full-Service Model and Consultancy Model. We offer this seminar at least once annually to parents with a child enrolled in either one of these models.
This training is in addition to the individualised support our supervisors provide parents throughout their children’s programs, and to the consultancy support they receive from our Clinical Consultant, Pam Roy, and the Director of the Lovaas Institute, Scott Wright.
Additional Parent Training Opportunities through ABIA
The Autism Behavioural Intervention Association (ABIA) is Victoria’s peak body for ABA delivery. ABIA provides training, education and support to parents, carers, and professionals working with children with Autism. Since its beginning, L4Life has had a strong partnership with ABIA, together working to build community training in, and awareness of, ABA therapy and its effectiveness.
For parents, therapists, educators and anyone else interested in learning more about ABA, L4Life senior staff provide the following workshops through ABIA:
