dc.description.abstract The primary purpose of the research is to understand the difficulties as well as successes parents have with the implementation of applied behavioral analysis (ABA) with their autistic child. The study participants were a convenience sample of parents and/or caregivers whose child has a diagnosis of autism and who receive educational services through Yolo County Office of Education. Four parents/caretakers volunteered to be interviewed and the interviews were taped, professionally transcribed and analyzed for common themes/concerns. Four main themes were identified in the interviews. Study participants discussed strategies and techniques for implementing ABA and gave examples of how their home and family were modified and adjusted in order to implement it. Implications for both service providers and parents with autistic children are discussed. Social networking and communication among parents is important for the successful implementation of ABA. en
