Parent Coaching Program
What is Parent Coaching?
Families and caregivers will have the opportunity to collaborate with a parent coach who has a background in speech, language or applied behavior analysis (ABA) to address the child's needs.
Each case will start with an intake assessment conducted by the parent coach. Each parent will get up to five, one-hour sessions per child/family which will be determined on a needs basis by the parent coach.
The aim of this program is to assist parents in learning skills to help in addressing areas of regression for their child given the situation during the pandemic.
This program responds to the immediate needs of families as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Parent Coaching model of therapy allows families to safely practice physical distancing while ensuring that parents are equipped with the tools and strategies to create meaningful and lasting change through positive parenting practices.
