How Parent-Mediated ABA Helps Parents, Providers and Payers Succeed: One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Join a discussion hosted by Catalight and Behavioral Health Business that explores parent-mediated Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and how it helps parents, children and the industry.

Parent-mediated ABA puts caregivers at the forefront of their child’s care. By reducing the need for scheduled sessions with a paraprofessional, parents are taught ABA strategies by licensed/certified high-level clinicians. Parents are taught to use ABA strategies throughout the day to improve skills and reduce challenging or dangerous behaviors.

Engage with Catalight’s Vice President of Clinical Excellence Lindsey Sneed, Ph.D., BCBA-D and Karen Bearss, Ph.D., clinical director of the Seattle Children’s Autism Center and professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of Washington.

Gain insights into the process and practice of parent-mediated ABA, how it works and what research has shown about its surprising benefits. The discussion will include both barriers to the adoption of parent-mediated ABA and perspectives on how it can aid in some of the industry’s biggest challenges.

Key takeaways include:

  • Why parent-mediated ABA is a valuable tool for any clinician or practitioner
  • How it benefits parents and children
  • What it can do for access and capacity issues
  • Current industry pushback
  • What payers and providers can do to support the practice
