Behavioral Skills Training Program for Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder   

The Center for Autism and Related Disabilities at the University at Albany is now offering a virtual group-format parent training program at no cost for parents of children with autism spectrum disorder. The goal of the program is to help parents learn behavioral techniques to reduce their children’s challenging behaviors in the home, such as tantrums, noncompliance, difficulties with transitions, and aggression. The techniques that will be taught are based on an evidence-based intervention developed by the RUBI Autism Network (Bearss et al., 2018). Because the program will be offered virtually, you can participate from the convenience of your own home!  

  Program Eligibility Requirements  

Participants must be:

  • A parent/caregiver of a child with autism spectrum disorder between the ages of 3 and 7 years
  • Motivated to learn skills for addressing challenging behaviors in the home
  • Able to participate in 11 training sessions offered on Wednesday evenings for 60-90 minutes (starting in mid-September 2020)
  • Willing to complete pre- and post-assessments
  • Able to join the sessions with video and audio
