Coaching and Engaging Families in Early Intervention Services

Apr 23, 2016

In this session, participants will learn more about a parent coaching model, which offers a means to build parents’ confidence and competence in the context of home visits.

Families need to play an important role in early intervention services in order to support their child’s goals and development. Although there is no “magic wand” to ensure family engagement, there are a variety of evidence-based strategies designed to support greater family involvement in early intervention services. In this session participants will learn more about a parent coaching model, which offers a means to build parents’ confidence and competence in the context of home visits. Parents receiving this kind of support from staff are better equipped to build nurturing relationships with their young children. Participants will also learn more about how to build effective working relationships with the families that they work with.

Our topic experts are available for onsite sessions, webinars, keynotes and presentations at conferences, and training sessions for supervisors, coaches and mentors.
