Training is delivered in home and in community settings (e.g., religious center, grocery store, park) using a short-term training model with a multidisciplinary approach including direct instruction, modeling, and coaching with live feedback. Training includes follow-up sessions to evaluate maintenance of skills, troubleshoot new issues, and provide booster training sessions if needed. Baucom Behavioral offers 2 training package options to accommodate family needs. Families can select a comprehensive parent training package or a specific parent training package. Skill areas addressed in training may include but are not limited to the following:
