Does your child engage in behaviors that drive you crazy? Wondering how you can capitalize on learning during playtime with your kiddo? Determined to stay close to your child though they’re growing up quickly?
If these or other parenting questions and challenges vex you from time to time, Easterseals Northeast Central Florida’s Parent Training Series by Behavior Analyst Allison Berard, M.S., BCBA, is for you.
In the series, Berard, a board-certified Behavior Analyst, offers a series of parent education tools – including handouts and videos – centered on children’s typical behaviors and coping skills for adults. She’s keen on helping children and parents change for the better and grow together in the process.
“Behavior change isn’t magic,” says Berard. “The desired outcome usually takes a lot of time, dedication and consistency. However, the outcomes can be magical!"
In her role at Easterseals, Berard is responsible for training teachers, parents and caregivers how to teach school readiness, play and social interaction skills as well as how to positively and successfully manage problem behavior. The Parent Training education handouts are available online here, or parents may receive them directly by emailing a request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, the first in the series of videos also are posted online and linked here:email@example.com.
