The main purpose of this study is to determine the most efficient way for families to reduce problem behavior in their children with autism spectrum disorder. Parents will be trained using telehealth to use applied behavior analysis (ABA) procedures to improve child behavior and communication. The study compares an established type of ABA assessment and treatment to a briefer, more streamlined version of this same type of assessment/treatment. After confirming an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis at Marcus, all sessions will be conducted in the home, with the family talking to the therapist at Marcus using an internet connection and a laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
