Forum West 1-2
Parent training is an effective intervention for reducing problem behaviors in children with autism spectrum disorder. However, accessing parent training can be challenging for some families due to limited availability, cost, or transportation issues. The Research Units in Behavioral Intervention (RUBI) is an evidence-based parent training program that can be delivered in different modalities and formats. The RUBI program teaches parents how to prevent and respond to problem behaviors, promote appropriate behaviors, and teach adaptive skills. This presentation will describe the RUBI program and its components and report the results of its effectiveness and acceptability across different modalities.
