In honor of autism awareness month, Institute for Behavioral Training (IBT) is offering it’s online training tool, Parent eLearning, for free for parents of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This online tool provides parents and caregivers with in-depth training on ASD, applied behavior analysis (ABA), and behavior management techniques, as well as other important topics.

The Parent eLearning training, which includes over 40 hours of material, is divided into modules that include information on the autism diagnosis, appropriate treatment (applied behavior analysis), managing problem behavior, working with siblings, and integrating the individual with ASD into the school, community, house of worship, and other natural environments.

For a personal parent perspective about the Parent eLearning, please read Kerrie Mallory-Thompson’s blog post here.
