ABA Parent Guidance in Nashville

At Wellspring Learning Centers, we hold “Parents As Partners” at the heart of our approach. We recognize that parents and caregivers play a vital role in the success of ABA therapy, which is why we offer a range of ABA-based parent guidance training opportunities to support your child’s ongoing growth beyond our center’s walls. Through collaborative relationships between our team and parents, we foster lasting progress in behavior and gain a deeper understanding of your child’s unique needs.

ABA Training for Parents at Wellspring Learning Centers

As part of our ABA therapy programs, families enrolled at Wellspring Learning Centers have the opportunity to participate in regular ABA-based parent guidance and training sessions. These sessions, led by our experienced Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs), are designed to ensure the effective implementation of your child’s treatment plan at home and other public settings.

This comprehensive support includes bi-weekly meetings, quarterly seminars, and annual family events, allowing you to stay informed, engaged, and equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to promote your child’s progress outside of ABA sessions.

What to Expect During Our ABA Parent Training Sessions

During our parent guidance sessions you can expect a collaborative approach as we develop treatment strategies, goals, and behavior support skills. Through these sessions, we create a supportive and empowering environment where we share knowledge, exchange ideas, and build a plan together for your child’s success.

Bi-Weekly Parent Meetings

Our bi-weekly parent meetings serve as a valuable time for collaboration between our team and parents. During these meetings we discuss your child’s progress, address arising challenges, and evaluate the effectiveness of their ABA treatment. Through these conversations, we can make necessary adjustments to the treatment plan so it remains tailored to your child’s changing needs.

Quarterly Seminars

Our quarterly seminars provide a valuable opportunity for us to collaborate with parents on topics specifically related to the unique needs of children with autism. During these sessions, we cover a wide range of topics, including establishing effective nighttime routines, potty training tips, and engaging in purposeful play. By addressing these important areas, we aim to equip parents with the resources and skills necessary to enhance their child’s daily routines, foster independence, and strengthen the parent-child bond.

Annual Family Events

We organize annual family events that provide an opportunity for our clients to participate in a calendar event specifically designed to be sensory-friendly and judgment-free. By offering these inclusive experiences, we aim to strengthen the sense of community among our families and create lasting memories in a setting that embraces and celebrates the diversity of our families.

We recently visited Wellspring and met with both Eric and Gerardo. They were both welcoming and enthusiastic to meet with us. This new clinic was absolutely stunning and very well thought out for both function and therapeutic success. Each room serves a purpose and focuses on specific goals a learner might have in their programming. Their enrollment process and parent support is excellent. We are excited to be able to use Wellspring for therapeutic matching for our clients!
