Parents Doing Therapy
Dr. Fein describes the crucial importance of training parents to incorporate therapy strategies into their daily interactions with their children. Teaching parents therapy techniques is also important to ensure that children have access to appropriate interventions even when trained therapists are not available in their area.
"...they (parents) can either practice the skills that the children are learning in their therapy at home; and let the children practice them in different settings to promote generalization; or they can actually teach the children new skills that they're not working on in their therapy."
