Journey to Independence- ABA Waitlist Training for Parents



Many parents and caregivers are on a waitlist or on a temporary halt for the medically necessitated Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) Therapeutic Services. ABA is an effective intervention and therapy which uses the science of behavior and principles of learning to teach children, adolescents, and adults with autism and other related special needs to reach their highest potential. The best approach to supporting these individuals is early detection and starting interventions as soon as possible. The research supports that the earlier services begin, the greater chance that child will lead happy and independent adult lives. 

There are millions of people living with Autism and related disorders whom would greatly benefit from ABA. Even with this evidenced-based and proven therapeutic modality, there is a huge shortage of qualified credentialed ABA Clinicians called Board Certified Behavior Analysts (BCBAs) globally. At last count, there were less then 50,000 BCBAs available globally to serve millions of people. Due to the effectiveness and gap in available ABA services, Ever-Learning, Inc developed this Journey to Independence Parent Training to support all those families who want to begin the therapeutic process to support their children in reaching their highest level of independence while they await for ABA services to begin or reconvene.
