Maximum Potential Kids Provides Affordable ABA Training for Schools Districts

As school districts struggle to find funding to support the increasing number of children with autism, offers schools districts affordable Applied Analysis Behavior training options for staff and teachers.

Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) June 16, 2009 -- According to the latest estimates from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, autism affects 1 in 150 children in the United States today. Unfortunately, public school systems and private schools around the country are quickly discovering that their ability to provide the best education for these children is limited. School districts simply lack the funding and training to provide these children with the best education possible. and the Maximum Potential Group seek to help schools in their search for affordable ABA training. ABA therapy, or Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, has been recognized as one of the best educational strategies for children with autism. According to the executive director of the Princeton Child Development Institute, ABA therapy is the only system that has systematically documented effectiveness. This means that ABA therapy is an ideal option for schools that are seeking an effective educational method for children with autism.

Garrett Butch, founder of and the Maximum Potential Group, sees the challenges that schools face on a daily basis. Butch is the parent of a child with autism and his main goal is to have everyone who interacts with his son Collin, have some type of training in ABA. By having ABA training, he knows that each school staff member will have a positive effect on Collin throughout the school day. By understanding the principles behind Applied Behavior Analysis, school personnel will be able to learn what reinforcers work well with Collin and can diffuse negative behavior, as well as effectively teach him new skills. Unfortunately, far too many school systems do not have the resources to provide this type of training to their staff.

The video based training that Maximum Potential provides offers schools with a number of advantages. The program taught by two PhD BCBA's with 25 years of experience in schools, allow districts to train their staff at an affordable rate. Each teacher is also able to re-watch the courses so that they can retain and refresh the information that they have learned. Schools only pay a onetime fee and staff do not have to leave campus, therefore alleviating the cost of travel and substitute teachers. The training is provided in a group setting, which facilitates conversation and fosters ideas to help each child.

In addition, the courses are affordable enough for families to purchase as well. This provides them with the means to continue the therapeutic methods that ABA provides their child. Many families with autistic children do not live near a trained therapist nor do they have the funds to send their child to hours of therapy per week. Through the courses provided by Maximum Potential, families are able to learn and understand the methods behind ABA training and work with their child throughout the day.
