“Early intervention is associated with improved outcomes when working with deaf babies and preschool children. Similarly, parental engagement has long been documented as leading to positive outcomes in language acquisition of deaf children (Calderon, 2000; DesJardin, et al., 2006; Zaidman-Zait et al, 2017) but we need to go beyond mere parental ‘involvement‘. We need to find ways to enable parents to confidently take forward the strategies being suggested by the therapist/teacher.

This webinar will focus on the use of specific parent-coaching techniques in early intervention with a particular focus on parent-coaching in teletherapy. This will be presented in the context of the latest evidence-based practice in the use of adult-coaching in early intervention and delegates will have an opportunity to explore different adult learning styles that form the basis for effective coaching. We will look at how we can best empower parents and adapt the way that messages are delivered to enable greater understanding and engagement in their child’s early intervention programme.

Training will be split in two 2-hour long webinars and an individual task to be carried out in between webinars. CEU’s from AGBell Academy will be applied for.
