Parents as Interventionists

Providing parent training as part of the service delivery model can aid parents in engaging in meaningful interactions with their children. It has been shown that these interactions can have a profound impact on client progress and treatment outcomes. While parent training and involvement can improve effectiveness of intervention, the feasibility of a parent’s ability to participate due to stress and other barriers is often not addressed as part of the assessment or consultative process.

The presentation and dissemination of pertinent information in regards to parent training, needs to be delivered with situational awareness in mind, and by using terminology that is in alignment with the audience. In order for Board Certified Behavior Analysts to have the most impact and best long-term outcomes for their clients, it is crucial to not only be able to increase skill acquisition or reduce challenging behaviors with a trained staff member, but also to ensure that skill sets are generalized to home with parents and caregivers.

There are critical factors that will determine parental involvement in treatment and those factors should be incorporated into treatment planning. Strategies on how to include these critical factors into treatment planning and parent implemented goals will be discussed.

Within this presentation, participants will:

    1. (1) be introduced to a structured interview assessment to determine parent stress, which can then be used to design obtainable parent goals.
    1. (2) learn how to identify and manage barriers in the consultative process
    1. (3) examine the critical factors that will lead to increased family involvement
    1. (4) gain access to knowledge tools for assisting parents identify activities and times to work on skills in the home environment.
