Pediatric Feeding Services
WHAT ARE FEEDING PROBLEMS?
Behavioral Parent TrainingBehavioral parent training is an evidence-based treatment that uses instruction, modeling and coaching to help parents learn how to manage their child’s difficult behaviors while improving the quality of the parent-child relationship. Both parents and children attend most sessions together. Treatment occurs in 1-hr sessions.
Who Might Benefit from this Approach?
Behavioral parent training has helped parents of children who have frequent temper tantrums, are not following directions well, talk back to adults and are overactive and impulsive.
In addition, behavioral parent training has helped many parents who feel overwhelmed by their child’s behavior, who want to learn more about parenting to prevent problems, have limited experience with children and/or feel their child is out of control.EXPERTISE
