Parent training is an essential component of providing ABA services for people who have autism. There are many challenges and barriers for the BCBA who is providing this training. In this presentation I will discuss several of those challenges. The first involves the implementation of effective training methods. Our goal should be to establish at least a resemblance of a behavioral repertoire that took us many years to establish. Along with the implementation of the training methods, it is paramount that the BCBA has an understanding of, and empathy regarding barriers that are in place for the parents while they are making their recommendations. It is important to consider the parents resources and conflicting obligations. The second challenge consists of ethical considerations that often arise, such as a disagreement over the course of the therapy, methods, school placement, use of unscientific methods etc. Or there may be situations arise where the technician feels uncomfortable in the home. They may witness a behavior from a parent that could meet criteria for calling child protective authorities. This presentation will provide the attendee with some tools needed to have the most successful parent training experience possible.
