  • ABA Bootcamp for Parents

    Friday, September 18, 2020

    The WVU Center for Excellence in Disabilities is hosting an ABA Bootcamp for Parents every Tuesday in October from 6-7:30 pm. Therapy based on Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) can enhance learning outcomes and reduce problem behavior. Parents often seek professional behavior analysts to support their children with disabilities meet their academic and behavioral goals. However, during COVID-19 in-person service provision may not be an available choice or the best choice for you and your child. Parents and caregivers may benefit from an understanding of the analytic framework that underlies ABA to support their children. This training series aims to give parents skills that will help them support their child with challenging behavior using Applied Behavior Analysis. These skills will include: learning why their child may engage in challenging behavior, learning how to prevent challenging behavior, and learning how to react to challenging behavior. The training will be led by Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and will include a consistent small group of parents who will engage in active learning activities to develop skills. The training will be partially driven by the needs and requests of the parents included in the group.

Please take the short survey to help us identify how you prefer to receive services and what additional information you have found would be beneficial to you. The survey is expected to take no more than 10 minutes. Please complete the survey if you have received any helpful guidance, training, or other services from the CED. A parent, guardian, or caregiver of someone who has received these services may also complete the survey based on their experience and needs.
