CBIT School

Group CBIT training for parents & their child

What Is CBIT?

Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics, otherwise known as CBIT, is an evidence based therapy that can help children reduce the frequency and severity of their tics, while also teaching them skills to manage new tics that may pop up in the future.

What is CBIT School?

CBIT School is a 6-week series of 75 minute video sessions done live with Ashley Annestedt, LCSW, a CBIT expert who treats patients around the world. The group is limited to 8 families so that Ashley can assist each participant/family with their unique needs. Parents are the primary participants but, their child is also welcome to take part in some or all of the sessions. The goal of CBIT School is to equip families with the skills and strategies to treat their child’s tics at home. CBIT School is also appropriate for adults with tics who would like to learn these skills. This can be a valuable lower-cost option than individual treatment and a great resource for those who have no access to CBIT in their community.

WHERE

Online in the comfort of your home. All you need is a laptop, desktop or tablet with a camera & audio, and good internet connection. You will be sent a Zoom invitation before each session.

WHEN

CBIT School is offered roughly 4 times per year. Our next series will begin this fall, once families have settled into their school routine. Please click the button below if you are interested in being updated about the next series. Although our times are most convenient for those in the Americas, Australia, & Asia, we are gathering interest for groups at a time to serve the UK and surrounding areas!

COST

$485 This includes the 6 week series, worksheets and other written material, and email support between sessions (limited to 1-2 brief emails per week). You can opt to pay the cost upfront or be invoiced weekly.

Families will have the option of scheduling individual follow up sessions if needed. If you cannot attend all sessions, full fee will still be charged but, you will receive the recorded session to review.
