As with so many questions, the answer is “it depends.” The frequency of ABA parent training will vary depending on your child’s specific needs and the recommendations of the BCBA developing your child’s program. But typically, parent training sessions are initially scheduled more frequently at the beginning of your program, say weekly or bi-weekly, to provide intensive support and instruction.
As you become more proficient in implementing ABA strategies and techniques, the frequency of training sessions may decrease. Ultimately, the goal of parent training is for you to become self-sufficient in applying ABA principles in your daily interactions with your kiddo.
Just remember, it is essential to maintain open communication with your child’s BCBA or Behavior Therapist to determine the appropriate frequency of parent training sessions based on your child’s progress and your comfort level with implementing ABA strategies effectively.
