Parent Guidance and Coaching in LSL Intervention Fall 2020

Experience Overview

This learning experience will move beyond coaching theory and models and focus on practical and ready to implement strategies and techniques to coach parents of children with hearing loss in listening and spoken language (LSL) early intervention. It’s all about the parent coaching strategies whether delivering face to face intervention in a program or the home or through telepractice. Through videotape excerpts and interaction, participants will examine and discuss tools and strategies designed to build highly effective parent-professional partnerships and expand the family’s abilities to promote their child’s listening and spoken language skills throughout their daily, play and social routines.
