Summary: Early intervention supports a child and their family by promoting the child’s learning and development within the context of the family’s everyday routines. One crucial piece in successful early intervention is building the family’s capacity to engage in activities that foster communication development in the child. In this course, Dathan Rush provides the purpose, rationale, and protocol for coaching parents of young children in natural learning environments to foster speech and language development. Using video analysis and discussion, the course demonstrates how to implement the five evidence-based characteristics of the coaching interaction style with parents of children receiving early intervention services. You’ll walk away with tools for implementing coaching strategies with families on your caseload.
