What Are Parental Services for Parents of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?
Parental support and services can include many types of support that Ascend Autism can offer to parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Most children served by Ascend Autism begin with home-based services. Ascend Autism provides ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) treatment in the following areas:
Parental support services can encompass parent training to help them assist in their child’s autism spectrum disorder (ASD) treatment. Parents play an integral role in the core set of Ascend Autism’s therapy services at all levels and phases of treatment.
Parent training is an important part of the guidelines for a strong ABA program for children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Parent support services include care coordination and psychoeducation on autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Do Parental Services Include Training in How to Work With Our Child?
Another term for parent support services and training used in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is parent-mediated intervention (PMI). Ascend Autism’s ABA professionals and technicians will work with you. We will establish a service plan for you and your child. You will learn techniques to help your child cope with core symptoms and improve behaviors that may be causing barriers at home and school.
Core symptom parental training can include help to work with your child to improve:

- Disruptive behavior
- Defiant behavior
Parental services can be conducted one-on-one, including therapist-guided parental coaching, while you’re interacting with your child. You can also have consultations with your care coordinator or therapist.
Services will be age-appropriate and will help you to gain skills working with your child at any age, from 18 months to adolescent.
