Abstract:

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a chronic neurodevelopmental condition of early childhood onset characterized by social communication deficits, restricted interests, and repetitive behaviors. In addition to the defining features, as many as 50% of children with ASD exhibit behavioral problems, including tantrums, noncompliance, and aggression. These behaviors interfere with the performance of daily living skills, limit the child’s ability to benefit from educational services, and may increase social isolation. Uncertainty on how to manage these behavioral problems may also amplify caregiver stress. The recognized struggles parents face in raising a child with ASD have sparked increased interest in evidence-based parent training (PT) programs, as they empower parents to be the agent of change for their child. The Research Unit on Behavioral Interventions (RUBI) Autism Network developed a manualized parent training program that utilizes techniques grounded in Applied Behavior Analysis to teach families of children with ASD how to manage their child’s behavioral problems. We conducted a series of studies on the RUBI program and found that it is acceptable to parents, can be reliably delivered by trained therapists, and reduces children’s noncompliant and disruptive behavior. Introductory Workshop 1 provides an overview of disruptive behaviors in ASD, followed by a review of the development and empirical investigation of the RUBI Parent Training program as a novel treatment for disruptive behavior in ASD. Introductory Workshop 2 provides an in-depth review of content for the 11 Core and 7 Supplemental RUBI sessions.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of Part 2 of the intensive introduction workshops, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the four key concepts that form the overarching framework of the RUBI program
  • Identify the content and structure of the 11 Core and 7 Supplemental RUBI sessions

  • Identify core aspects of RUBI in action through case examples
