Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have progressed much from treatment and intervention from Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). Unfortunately, the families receiving treatment face a number of struggles from the initial diagnostic process, to the search for appropriate services, financial burdens, management of behaviors and caring for a child with ASD among everyday life stressors. Although appropriate ABA services may be in place and implemented in a professional manner to serve children with ASD, the overall stressors families face can impede the relationship between behavior therapy staff and families which can affect the progress of a child. Therefore, the intended purpose of this grant thesis proposal is to seek funding for a research trial of an ABA staff development program. This program would be designed to target a systems theory perspective in hopes of creating an awareness of the challenge’s families of children with ASD face, which ultimately may affect progress of a child. Although actual submission of this grant proposal is not requirement for thesis completion, a realistic host agency is needed. Easterseals Southern California Autism services–ABA department has allowed partnership for this project.
