Parent coaching in your home

Waldvogel048crop

Have you ever wished you could hire a parent coach to come into your home and show you how to parent? Look no further! Do any of these sound familiar?

“My toddler throws temper tantrums all day.”

“How do I get my children to listen without yelling?”

“How do I stop my child from hitting?”

“Typical discipline and parenting doesn’t work with my child!”

“How do get my kids to stop fighting?”

If any of these sound familiar, YOU ARE NOT ALONE AND YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG AS A PARENT!!! These concerns are common with children of all ages and abilities. But that doesn’t mean you need to endure their behavior!

Our child behavior experts identify how your child’s behavior serves him/her. We identify skills your child is missing such as listening the first time, pausing preferred activities, accepting no for an answer, and accepting when things don’t go his/her way. Our experts demonstrate their recommendations for you and then coach you to use them. We coach you to respond in a way that doesn’t make the unwanted behavior worse.

HERE IS HOW IT WORKS: 

Complimentary phone consultation

Start by requesting a complimentary, 30-minute phone consultation. Prior to the phone consultation, you will complete a short online Pre-Consultation Interest form. During the phone consultation, we will ask you questions to ensure we are able to meet your needs. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about our services.

In-home assessment visit

Our first visit to your home functions as an assessment visit. The assessment visit is 90 minutes. Assessment methods may include: interviewing you about your child’s behavior in person or on the phone, direct observation of your family, review of assigned baseline data, direct interaction with your child to model recommendations and ensure your child responds as expected to recommended strategies, and/or record review. Our goal is to leave you with at least one strategy to which your child is responding positively. The fee for the assessment visit is $600.

Follow-up visits

At least one follow-up visit is required. Follow-up visits are 60 minutes. The fee for each follow-up visit is $375. Each family starts with at least two visits and most families find their goals met in 2-6 visits.

Written recommendations

Ever just wish your child came with a manual?! After each visit, you’ll receive a written summary of our recommendations. You’ll refer back to this for years to come when new things come up! Our goal is that you learn to recognize new patterns of behavior as soon as they begin to develop so you aren’t just putting out your current behavioral fires.

Virtual parent coaching

Parent coaching is provided in your home until we have sufficient data to suggest that you can continue to progress toward agreed upon goals with less support. Virtual parent coaching is done using a secure virtual meeting room. Using a webcam, we can hear and see everything to coach you. This is necessary part of the program for some families to systematically fade back our support for your long-term goal sustainability. The goal is to mirror life when a Consultant is not present. Not all families require virtual parent coaching. The fee for each virtual parent coaching session is $300.

Parent coaching over the phone

When we have sufficient data to suggest that you have accomplished your agreed upon goals, or when you can continue to progress toward agreed upon goals with less support, we will recommend phone consultation. This process of systematically reducing Consultant involvement is designed to promote long-term behavioral gains. We minimize the potential that your new skills and/or your child’s behavior regresses when we remain in communication with you. For this reason, weekly phone parent coaching sessions are recommended after in-home and/or tele-behavioral consultation visits are no longer required. Parent coaching sessions may last up to thirty minutes. The fee for parent coaching over the phone is $250 and includes 2 hours of phone consultation time. Parent coaching over the phone is only available after in-home parent coaching has been provided.

HOW MANY VISITS WILL I NEED? 

While most parents require 2-6 visits,the number of visits varies depending on several factors including, but not limited to:

  • The behavior(s) of concern
  • Consultant, parent, and child schedules and learning styles
  • Frequency/intensity of behavior
  • The length of time the child has been practicing the unwanted behavior; the longer the behavior has worked for the child, the longer it will take to resolve
  • The extent to which the behavior serves multiple functions for the child; a given behavior may work to get attention from others and make work to effectively escape or avoid non-preferred situations/activities
  • Parent ability to implement recommendations – each person has a unique learning style and response to training

We cannot guarantee or promise the success of our program in any number of visits or weeks. Prepayment is required to reserve your preferred appointment times. We use PayPal to invoice, and accept PayPal, credit card, or debit card for payment. In some cases, families are able to seek reimbursement from FSA or HSA funds for our services.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve your family! Schedule your complimentary, 30-minute phone consultation today!
