What Parent Coaching Looks Like

Introductory Phone Consultation

Start by purchasing a 30-minute, introductory phone consultation. You’ll schedule a time that works for you and complete a short online pre-consultation form before the call. During the call, we’ll discuss your questions and provide at least one evidence-based recommendation. The fee for this consultation is $60. (Feel free to check out our FAQ ahead of time.) Parents of our partner schools receive one 30-minute introductory phone consultation complimentary of our partnership. Ask your school director for a promo code to enter at checkout.

Virtual Consultation Visit

One of our highly experienced consultants will meet with you via Zoom. During your 60-minute visit, you and your child will interact with our consultant, as they discover where the unwanted behavior is coming from and what the best next steps will be. By using Zoom video conferencing technology, we can see what’s happening in your home, interact with you and your child, and provide coaching in real time.

Our goal is to leave you with at least one strategy that your child responds positively to, and then start working on a next-steps action plan. You’ll also receive a written plan of action, and recorded parent workshop videos.

From here, we’ll schedule at least two 60-minute follow-up visits. We’ll also give you additional written, personalized summaries of our recommendations for each visit that you’ll be able to use for years to come. We’ll schedule additional follow-up visits if necessary. The cost of is $400 per visit, with most families reaching their goals in 3-6 total visits.

Worried you might get stuck in between visits? Not a problem! We’re available by text and email to trouble shoot along the way. Each of our visits includes reasonable text, email and phone calls for the week between each visit.

Phone Coaching

Many families graduate to phone support after just a few visits. Phone support is a bit like the training wheels on a bike…it gives you the support you need to ride on your own while you’re still getting your balance. These sessions generally last about 30 minutes each. The fee for phone coaching is $175 per one hour of phone support. You will continue to receive access to online resources, and text and email support during this time.
