Course Information

ABSTRACT: PART 1

Individuals with ASDs exhibit behavioral problems, including tantrums, failure to respond to parent request, and aggression. These behaviors interfere with the performance of daily living skills, limit the child’s ability to benefit from educational services, and may increase social isolation. Uncertainty on how to manage these behavioral problems may also amplify caregiver stress. The recognized struggles parents face in raising a child with ASD have sparked increased interest in evidence-based parent training (PT) programs, as they empower parents to be the agent of change for their child. The Research Unit on Behavioral Interventions (RUBI) Autism Network developed a manualized parent training program that utilizes techniques grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis to teach families of children with ASD how to manage their child’s behavioral problems. The RUBI program was evaluated in a series of studies that found that it is acceptable to parents, can be reliably delivered by trained therapists, reduces children’s disruptive behavior, and can be done both in person or via telehealth and in group formats.

In the first course in our On-Demand RUBI Parent Training Series, An Intensive Introduction to The RUBI Parent Training Program: Parent Training for Disruptive Behaviors in Autism Spectrum Disorder - Part 1, Dr. Karen Bearss provides an overview of disruptive behaviors in ASD and provides an in depth review of the development and empirical investigation of the RUBI Parent Training program as a novel treatment for disruptive behavior in ASD. This course is perfect for those that want an in-depth look at the evidence base behind the RUBI Parent Training Program.

The content in this course was sourced from the two most recent live iterations of this workshop- January and May 2021.

Target Audience: Professionals for whom the topic is within their scope of practice. The audiences that attended our live workshops since 2019 have include behavior analysts at the Master and Doctoral Degree level, clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, certified counselors, social workers, teachers, SLPs, and more. We offer a wide range of continuing education credit opportunities for interested professionals.  We welcome students and others who are also interested in the topic to join us.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After attending this course participants should be able to:

  1. Identify differences in the presentation of disruptive behavior in youth with ASD compared to neurotypical peers
  2. Identify the rationale for parent training (PT) as a front-line treatment for children with ASD
  3. Identify the various types of PT for children with ASD, including current research findings
  4. Identify the key aspects of the development of the RUBI program, including findings from a series of large-scale randomized clinical trials
