Parent Coaching involves a strengths-based approach to teaching parenting, giving clear, explicit
directives to parents and caregivers, and designed to improve challenging behaviors in children.
Coaching provides more opportunities for children to learn. Effective coaching serves to build
parents’ capacity, empowering them to embed their use of supportive strategies into everyday
activities and routines.
The coach will mentor and guide the parent through real-life parenting and family issues as they
come up. The service can include scheduled face-to-face sessions but also access to online
services or resources.
