Autism and cognitive behaviour therapy

In this Ability Life Solutions Video Favorite, Dr. Jonathan Weiss joins the WhatSheSaid Talk radio program with Jessica Janerone to discuss his study conducted at York University, in which Janerone partook, which found that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can be more effective with a parent present during the sessions with children with autism. One key reason that parental involvement in their child’s CBT sessions improved the experience was the indirect effect on the parent’s mental health and perceptions of their children.

Janerone discusses her experience with her son Noah, who was diagnosed with autism at age 8, sitting in the waiting room for the majority of her son’s CBT sessions, and briefly discussing the session with the clinician at the end of the session. It wasn’t until she participated in Dr. Weiss’s study that she better understood methods she could use to work with Noah, by observing them in action.
