In Parent Coaching, families meet with the clinician to discuss how best to support and manage their child with special needs.  This can cover managing transitions, such as moving or attending school, dealing with challenging or disruptive behaviours, and other parenting issues.

The sessions are often done weekly, biweekly, or monthly with the parent coach.  The frequency of sessions will be discussed during the initial intake process.  The process is individualized to the needs and priorities of each child and their family.  The coach will answer any questions the parents may have, address their concerns, and focus on the individual needs of the child.  As the parent engages with their child, the parent coach will model strategies and provide assistance regarding goals and techniques.
