Having a child with special needs headed into adulthood can be a lot. It can be confusing and extremely overwhelming trying to provide the right amount of care and the right amount of “letting go.”
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) techniques can help children with special needs learn independence skills to increase independence. ABA uses scientific evidence to help you learn the skills necessary to positively guild your child into adulthood.
The idea of parenting through ABA focuses on empowering parents by providing tools necessary to cause successful behavior change and development. This helps the child, as well as the parent, reduce negativity, feeling guilty, or frustration.
Perhaps you have questions like:
- What about safety?
- What about school challenges?
- How do we work on independent living skills?
- What are the basic activities for daily living (ADL) that my child can learn?
- How do I increase my child’ss community involvement?
All of these questions can be answered through ABA.
