Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) June 13, 2011
As districts wrap up the school year and as summer gets into full swing, many parents of children with autism wonder how to best keep last years skills and how to get a jump on next years IEP goals. The recent launch of Maximum Potentials summer program will allow parents of children with autism to learn the skills they need to actively work with their children during the break.
The program is a training and curriculum package that enables a parent to be trained in the skills associated with ABA or to train another individual to work with their child. The training modules are easy to understand and each skill learned can be used in any environment.
“We are introducing this program as part of our new offerings to allow parents to stay engaged with their children and get them ready for next year” stated Garrett Butch Founder of Maximum Potential and the father of a 9 year old with autism. “ There is always the chance that over the summer our kids can have some form of regression and it is imperative that we keep the momentum going from the previous year.
The training and curriculum consist of 17 different modules that teach an instructor skills that enable them to learn how to set up a one on one teaching program as well as how to deal with behavior, socials skills and generalizing to the environment. The curriculum is over 500 fully customizable lesson plans that are compatible with the ABLLS-R and in many cases mirror or are used as IEP goals.
“For the past three years we have used our program to train baby sitters, family members, friends and even a trainer at our local Crossfit gym to work with Collin.” says Mr. Butch. This year we are training a college student to work with our son over the summer on his upcoming goals and social interaction. We understand that this in no way replaces a BCBA or qualified therapist but in many cases we as parents can’t afford a therapists, do not live near a therapists or just want to add on to what a therapist is already doing. Our program gives each family a fighting chance.
