Group-Based Behavioral Skills Training
Group-Based Behavioral Skills Training on use of Child-Directed Interactions and Effective Instruction Delivery for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder: Parent and Child Outcomes
Children with autism often have difficulties following directions and interacting with others when playing. Involving families in care and sharing ways to help their child is essential. You will learn two sets of intervention skills to support your child. The first one is about how to maximize playtime with your child, and the second is about how to give effective directions.
Training will include two 90-minute group pieces of training. You are giving instructions on how to use the interventions, modeling how to do them, and practicing the intervention skills. We will collect information through: Observations of you and your child before and after the pieces of training at a clinic and using Zoom in your home. We will observe the skills we teach you and the child’s interactions during play and direction following. Surveys to see how much you liked the pieces of training and interventions. Rating scales to see how the training impacted your relationship with your child and stress level.
- Participants must have a child diagnosed with autism between the ages of 2 and 6.
- Child participants must have difficulty following directions.
- Parent and child participants must be able to attend sessions regularly.
