Do you have a young child who struggles to connect socially? Kids BRAIN and Ability ABA are excited to offer a new parent training program called the Empowering the Spectrum of Parents (ESP) Program. This is specifically for parents of children aged 12 months to 6 years old with risk factors for autism spectrum disorders and related conditions. No formal diagnosis is required. This program targets children who struggle to communicate, to engage with caregivers and peers, to understand how to play creatively and collaboratively, and to reach out to others around them to initiate conversation, play, and to truly engage. The course is offered in several formats to meet your family's needs. Topics include addressing challenging behaviors, increasing interaction, fostering engagement, building communication, and teaching play skills.

Course options include:

  • 12 weekly 1-hour sessions offered virtually and individually, including additional 12 private coaching sessions to transition lesson content from knowledge to action through guided practice, parent training manual included ($1680)
  • On-demand, prerecorded training videos; includes the same content as the live virtual program, but can be viewed on your schedule and at your pace ($350)
