I’m sharing my framework with you because I know what it feels like when you can’t reach a parent who desperately needs help. It was crushing when Amanda, a defeated mother of a 10-year-old boy who had been diagnosed with Prader Willi Syndrome, scrawled “give up” on the calendar a date 3 weeks from the day of our meeting,
I knew I had to find a way to get her to start using the strategies I’d been trying to teach her for months. But how?
Until then, she clearly understood the procedures I taught her and even promised to follow through at the end of each training session. Yet she never did.
I went home and thought about what I could do differently. I changed my approach and started looking at the situation from her perspective. By doing so, in less than the 21 days I’d promised her, I was able to uncover what was standing in her way so that she could be truly motivated to help her son. By using the strategies I share in the Partnership Language 5-Day Challenge I learned that she believed her son’s behavior was the result of his disability – and that therefore none of the interventions I taught her would make a difference.
Once I understood where she was coming from, one simple statement changed everything for her.
I told her, “I understand that he has a disability, but his behavior is not his disability. It is the result of the conditions that surround his behavior. If the conditions stay the same, so does the behavior. If you change the conditions, you change the behavior.”
At that moment she finally understood what months of “training” never achieved. She began using the strategies I had been teaching her. It wasn’t easy, but she stuck with it. One day we sat together and she said, “I finally enjoyed spending time with my son,” and broke down in tears.
This system works.
You know that getting parents to use ABA strategies at home is the most effective way to make serious gains with your clients. But because parents are already overwhelmed, the reality is grim:
But that’s not the end of it—the problem’s actually worse than that!
This is why I stopped parent training – and started partnering with parents instead!
