Abstract of her presentation at the ABA International Conference.

Parent-Assessment of Behavioral Concepts

This presentation will be held in English.


At this year’s conference, Melissa Druskis will talk about how to assess parent’s ABA skills through structured methods, how to craft individualized goals based on these assessments, and how to lead engaging parent meetings that not only secure parental buy-in but also facilitate the successful transfer of goals into the home and community settings. By equipping clinicians with these essential skills, we can enhance the impact of parent training and improve the lives of children with ASD and their families.
