LATEST ISSUE of NASET's AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER SERIES (ASD)


NASET’s Autism Spectrum Disorders Series

This issue of NASET’s Autism Spectrum Disorder series is written by Josefina Beyra from Florida International University.  The focus of the article is on teaching parents various classroom and therapeutic ABA strategies to improve quality of life for children with ASD and their families. Parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience high levels of stress due to sacrifices in daily living and their children’s problem behaviors. Though very little can be done to lighten the burden of raising a child with a disability, it is possible to increase the quality of life of families with children in the spectrum. The most effective intervention for increasing positive and appropriate behavior in children with ASD is Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). This common intervention for children is widely known and used in both the classroom and in therapy. Research available on parent training in ABA focuses on learning outcomes of children with ASD.  This literature review analyzes the effects of family-friendly ABA programs and parent training in ABA strategies on quality of life and potentially higher learning gains.
