OASIS - Online and Applied System of Intervention Skills

We’re evaluating a training program based on Applied Behavior Analysis for parents of children with autism. We want to know how effective this training program is in teaching you how to develop your child’s independent skills and manage his/her challenging behaviors. Families participating in this project will go through the complete training program. Parents will complete web-based training modules and apply the skills learned in the modules with guidance from a trained clinician. The parent coach will provide immediate feedback about your use of these skills while you work one-on-one with your child during therapy sessions. The parent coach will talk with you via a live audio/video feed at an off-site clinic. The training program will take approximately sixteen weeks to complete. Throughout the program, we’ll assess your child’s behaviors using standardized assessments; we’ll also assess your learning and satisfaction with the training program.
