Parent training for child behavior management: Children are born with a range of personalities and behavioral tendencies. Sometimes, children with difficult temperaments are born to parents who are loving and attentive, but cannot manage their children's difficult behavior. FPPA provides parent training for child behavior management. This is a hands-on intervention that teaches strategies that will enhance your parenting toolbox and help you be more effective in managing your child's difficult behaviors.
Parent training for autism spectrum disorders: Children with autism have difficulties accurately processing and understanding information in their environment. This often leads to confusion and behavioral difficulties. With the help of experienced parents, the professional community has identified a set of strategies that often help individuals with autism understand their environments and expectations about their behavior more clearly. Parent training for autism spectrum disorders employs strategies developed by Division TEACCH, enlisting parents as teachers for their children. You will be taught strategies that will help your child access the best of his or her skills and abilities.
