Behavior Management Strategies

At Cardinal ABA, we empower parents with effective strategies to address challenging behaviors. Part of our training includes teaching parents how to execute Functional Behavior Assessments (FBAs). FBAs are instrumental in discerning the precursors and results of certain behaviors, thereby providing valuable insights into the root issues leading to behavioral challenges and assisting in the creation of tailored interventions.

Furthermore, we lend our expertise to addressing common behavioral difficulties such as tantrums, noncompliance, and aggression. Our coaching services offer targeted strategies that help manage these challenges, fostering the implementation of healthier alternatives. With these tools at your disposal, our ultimate goal is to nurture a more harmonious and stable environment for both you and your child.

Developing Communication and Social Skills

Assist your child in discovering their individual voice and forging profound connections. Our techniques, grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), cultivate the foundational elements of communication, namely, eye engagement, the act of imitation, and mutual attention. Furthermore, we’ll equip you with guidance to expand their social abilities via playful activities, reciprocal participation, and affirmative interactions with peers. Equipped with these tools, you’ll witness your child confidently immerse themselves in their environment, developing robust relationships with you and their peers.

Collaborating with ABA Therapists

Collaborate with ABA therapists to ensure your child’s therapy is consistent and comprehensive. Learn to communicate effectively, sharing detailed observations and progress to refine strategies and interventions. Understand the importance of maintaining consistency by aligning home-based techniques with those used during professional therapy sessions.

Self-Care for Parents

At Cardinal ABA, we underscore the vital role parent self-care plays in effectively administering your child’s care. Mastering stress management is pivotal, contributing to your personal well-being as well as fostering a serene and compassionate home ambiance. We endow you with practical tactics to adeptly cope with daily pressures, making certain that you are at your peak potential when aiding your child.
