Parental participation is considered an essential component to gain most from EIBI interventions. Parent participation is critical to support generalization and maintenance of the skills taught during one to one sessions. We provide the parents individualized support to systematically incorporate them into their child’s learning environment and help them become active participant in child’s learning. At Atlas Behavior Services, parents are considered integral part of client’s treatment team and parent input and communication of changing needs are always encouraged.
We utilize Behavior Skills Training (BST) when working with parents. First, we provide the parents rational and written description of the procedures that they will be trained on. When all questions are answered, parents are shown how to implement the selected intervention. Then, the parent implements the intervention and provided feedback during the practice. The practice and feedback continue till the parent implements the selected intervention independently.
