How can you provide advice about families and children when you have not had you own children yet?
That is a wonderful question, and it is one I have gotten frequently throughout my years of work. Being the full-time parent to a child, while undeniably rewarding, can also bring many challenges. Often, a busy parent can develop blind spots to their child’s needs, or misread behavior in their home. My advice, guidance, and professional perception comes from years of training, and many more years of hands-on experience helping families with behavioral challenges. As a professional, I am trained to walk into all situations with fresh eyes, an open heart, and no judgment. In my years of practice, I have had many handprints on my heart from children from all walks of life. I have years of experience helping children with all levels of challenges to cope and communicate in whatever ways work best for their specific situation. While I acknowledge how difficult it can be for a parent to ask for help, it is often the best and most courageous thing a parent can do for their family. It is not a sign of weakness, but a sign of love. While I have not yet had children of my own, I bring with me a fresh viewpoint, as well as a vast bank of experience and expertise to draw from for many different situations.
Will ABA work?
Yes it can, and even if you have tried it before I wouldn’t quit. We sometimes meet the wrong people at the wrong time, just like the right people at the right time. Implementation, follow-through, data, tools, and teamwork will help your family do great things. ABA requires a consistency and focus to your child’s improvement that can sometimes be challenging and takes time to show noticeable gains. However, with the right tools and approach, small gains quickly turn into big gains, and you will see vast improvements in your home. It is like developing any other habit and routine, it takes time and dedication to make a long-lasting change for the better.
What if I don’t agree?
We do not have to agree to be successful, we have to respect each other and have a common goal. At the end of the day, you are the parent, and it is ultimately your choice on what recommendations you choose to implement. It is very similar to getting a recommended diet from a nutritionist. They can outline a meal plan for you, but it is ultimately up to you to decide what you will and will not eat. I will happily offer my professional opinion on intervention tactics, communication modifications, sensory integration practices, etc. It is ultimately up to you as the parent to decide which of these tools you would like to implement in the home. I will gladly work with you to exhaust all of our options until we find one that works for you and your family.
