ABASI Consultation Package
If an instructor does not have time to learn about all of the procedures in the ABASI curriculum, but still wishes to incorporate these procedures into their sports training to gain a competitive edge to enhance the performance of their athletes, community consultation is a great option. Community based consultation involves contracting with an ABASI consultant who will select an appropriate intervention based on the needs of your training facility and athletes, and implement the selected intervention for you. The athletic trainer will not have to worry about collecting or graphing data of student performance, as the ABASI consultant will complete this, nor will the trainer have to worry about conducting any sessions. Consulting provides the athletic trainers and studios flexibility and options of enhancing training of their athletes without having to invest the time into learning about each procedure.
Our Initial Consultation Package Includes
- An initial consultation will occur with the studio or training facility and will include:.
- 1 hour interview with the athletic trainer to determine and assess the target behavior for change and learn about current coaching methodology. Each facility is allotted up to 3 target behaviors for change with each consulting package. For example, a dance studio could select 1-3 different dance movements to work on improving with the ABASI intervention.
- A 3-hour data based observation of the current training methods (can be conducted on multiple visits, although a minimum fee of 45 minutes is required for each visit).
