Parenting a child or teen with special needs is one of the most demanding challenges that any family could face. Mind and Motion Parent Effectiveness Training teaches pivotal techniques to help address these challenges and improve interactions with children. Sessions are scheduled individually with parents and will address the following issues: Natural consequences, Appropriate expectations, Time Out or other consequences, Meeting the emotional needs of your child/teen, How parents give away their power, How parents get their buttons pushed, and Appropriate restrictions for a given behavior. The purpose of parent training is to teach behavioral strategies and interventions that can be used at home, with siblings, at school, with friends, and in various settings where children tend to have difficulties. Parents will be asked to participate in sessions, role-play, complete various assignments, and rate their child’s success with each skill. Furthermore, parents will be involved with practicing reciprocal skills with their children. Topics for these sessions include, but are not limited to: using descriptive statements, direct commands, labeled rewards, and other effective strategies for behavior management.
