The intention of this course is to provide parents with basic knowledge of the principles of ABA and their application to everyday life and challenges.  It is NOT intended to replace the involvement of a skills professional in the management of severe problem behaviour.  While we can provide a general overview of tips and recommendations, we cannot provide individual consulting


  • What time are the live meetings scheduled for?

    The live meetings will be help every Thursday at 12pm EST.

  • What if I can't make it to the live meeting?

    The recording will be saved and sent to all course members for anytime viewing!

  • Will you be able to help me with my child's specific case?

    The purpose of this course is to disseminate evidence-based ABA content that is relevant to parents of children with autism. Unfortunately, we can't give you specific behaviour-analytic advice without meeting you or your child. For specific situations, we recommend that you contact a BCBA in your area.

    We have a 10-day money back refund if you unhappy with your purchase.
