Description:
The literature continues to show support for parents being active members during ABA sessions and for generalization of skills across settings and people. Current research will be presented on the importance of including parents in ABA sessions and various strategies to “train the parent trainer.” The speaker will discuss parent buy-in, building rapport with both clients and families, compassionate care in behavior analysis, and social validity of treatment goals. 

 
During the presentation the speaker will ask for active audience participation when presented with questions for discussion, and participation during a group activity.
