The Enhancing Interactions program is an intervention designed to help parents of young children on the autism spectrum.
The program addresses challenging behaviors and foster skill development by modelling techniques as well as coaching parents as they implement the strategies themselves.
The program has the dual goals of enhancing interactions and parenting effectiveness while at the same time improving the core deficits and long-term outcomes in the child.
The Enhacing Interactions program was developed by staff at the Treatment and Research Institute for Autism Spectrum Disorders (TRIAD) at Vanderbilt University. The program is now available in a web-based tutorial version.
