Behavioral Parent Training
& Consultation

Parent Training & Education

At SLBS, parents learn the basic science of how children learn and grow. We teach families about how these evidence based principles can be utilized in everyday situations. Training topics are chosen based on individual families’ needs.


Common Training Topics Include: 

  • How to get your children to listen on the first time!

  • Reinforcement vs. Punishment - including effective use of reinforcement

  • What is Bribery? How is it different than reinforcement?

  • Determining & understanding why behaviors happen and how we can respond

Behavioral Consultation 

Often paired with parent training, behavioral consultation services are designed to help parents improve their child’s ability to complete specific everyday routines or tasks. We work with parents to create an individualized plan of action to strategically and systematically teach children new behaviors to replace challenging behaviors.


Skills that could be addressed through behavioral consultation include:

  • Safety concerns

  • Meal-time challenges (including picky eaters)

  • Morning and bedtime routines

  • Cleaning up toys

  • Obsessive, perseverative, or rigid behaviors

  • Difficulty with changes in routine

  • Transitioning throughout the day

  • Potty training

  • Seemingly random tantrums or "melt-downs"

  • Not listening to instructions
