We have two options for parent coaching through Emerging Minds:
Parent Coaching Intervention Package:
This program (PCIP) is designed to support parents of newly diagnosed children with ASD to learn important strategies to support their child’s development in everyday activities. Each package consists of 10 sessions, conducted on a weekly or biweekly basis. The frequency of sessions will be discussed during the initial intake and program design process. The coaching process is individualized to the needs and priorities of each child and their family.
During parent coaching sessions, the coach will answer any questions that the parents may have, address their concerns, with a focus on the child’s particular needs. This can cover supporting skill development during daily routines (e.g., play time, meal time, bath time, etc.), as well as managing transitions, dealing with challenging behaviours, and preparing for/optimizing school experiences. As the parent engages with their child, the parent coach will describe strategies and provide assistance regarding goals and techniques that work best with the child. For more information on our Parent Coaching Intervention Package, please contact Eleanor Klausmann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
