Maximum Potential Offers Affordable Training Course for Parents of Children with Autism
Date:2/2/2009

ALPHARETTA, Ga., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents of children with autism often face a daunting task of paying for the prescribed hours of ABA (Applied Behavior Analysis) therapy for their children. With the rate of autism listed at 1 in every 150 children, and the average yearly cost of ABA therapy between $20,000 and $50,000, more families than ever are facing an uphill battle to pay for services. Only a handful of states mandate insurance companies to pay for ABA and for those that can't afford therapy, there is little available.

In an effort to provide every family with a chance to help their children, Maximum Potential Group (http://www.maximumpotentialkids.com) of Alpharetta, GA has released an ABA training course that provides parents with an opportunity to learn the principles of ABA. The program gives parents, school systems and caregivers everything they need to make a difference in the lives of their children and students, at a fraction of the cost of traditional therapy options.

"Our ABA course was created by Coby Lund, PhD, BCBA, and Janet Lund, PhD, BCBA, to empower parents and other family members of children with autism to develop an effective and affordable in-home ABA program and give their children a fighting chance," says Garrett Butch, founder of Maximum Potential Group and the father of a six-year-old with autism. "There are too many families in the United States who do not live near a qualified therapist, or do not have the financial resources to pay for 20 to 30 hours a week for intensive ABA therapy. They deserve the same opportunity to treat their children as those who can afford these services."

Maximum Potential's ABA course contains 17 modules on 8 DVDs that allows family members to understand all of the principles of ABA and then work with a child throughout the day. In each of the modules are examples of ABA sessions with children on all levels of the autism spectrum.

"Our goal was to provide an affordable alternative for families who so desperately need help working with their children," Butch said. "Learning how to set up an ABA program as well as learning skills such as data collection, behavior management and social skills programing can really make a difference in the lives of both a parent and a child."
