What is Parent-2-Child?
Parent-2-Child Training is a practical solution that offers up to 10 hours of weekly classroom instruction for the child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and parents using the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). The training is offered in 9 week sessions and then repeated. Children and parents continue to go through the 9 week sessions until their child transitions out of Early Supports and Services, at age 3. The training provides:
Twenty-five hours of behavioral intervention is the recommended standard for children with ASD, according to the most recent recommendation by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Parent-2-Child teaches parents the skills to provide intervention on a daily basis. Then parents can take advantage of the many hours they already spend with their child to provide intensive treatment during their daily lives. Children learn the skills to address the fundamental challenges of autism within their normal activities, so skills are easily generalized to life outside the classroom. Together, parents and children deepen their relationships and connect with other children and families.
