Course Overview

Coaching parents is a fundamental part of early language intervention and professionals need to be effective coaches if parents are to become effective language facilitators for their child. But common coaching practices may result in limited and/or short-term behaviour change because they often fail to provide a comprehensive, structured approach that is based on best practice.

Drawing on the most current research on effective coaching, this e-Seminar:

  • addresses appropriate communication goals for the child, as well as the corresponding responsive interaction strategies that parents must learn to help the child achieve these goals. 
  • clearly outlines a specific structure for coaching parents that is easy to follow and includes the key ingredients for long-term behaviour change. 

Case studies and videos demonstrate how to use the 4-step coaching structure in one-to one contexts with parents.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this 3 hour e-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Define coaching within a parent-implemented intervention model.
  • Summarize a structure for choosing communication goals for the child and responsive strategies for the parent.
  • List three key elements that facilitate habit formation and long-term behaviour change.
  • Describe the Hanen 4-step coaching model.
