We work closely with parents and caregivers in the natural environment, and coach them on strategies for decreasing children’s undesired behaviors and increasing adaptive and desired skills. Parents and caregivers play a key role for changing our children’s behavior, therefore, our service emphasize the importance of including them in our sessions, since at the end of the day, they are the ones spending most time with their children. Sessions will vary according to needs. Periodic visits are recommended for assessment, intervention and follow up.
Some of the areas that we have coached parents in are:
- Compliance with demands and routines
- Communication of wants and needs
- Social skills
- Independent living skills, including toilet training
- Play skills
