16th ANNUAL EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
February 26-28, 2017 • Atlanta, GA
2/26/2017 | 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM | Real-Time Embedded Coaching, An Effective Tool for Working with Families | Grand Hall A
This course will provide coaching techniques for professionals working with parents of children with hearing loss. Under the practices of IDEA it is suggested that support provided to families accessing Part C, Early Intervention, services should include a coaching model that uses a combination of “demonstration” and “return demonstration.”
Embedded coaching is a term applied to coaching a parent and providing suggestions, while she is engaged in an activity with a child rather than waiting until after the activity is over. The early interventionist is providing support to that caregiver in real time by making comments and suggestions throughout the activity. By doing so, the parent or primary caregiver is able to adjust her technique and incorporate suggestions immediately and thereby immediately see the impact of the suggestion. This also gives the coach an opportunity to verify for the parent what she is doing well and ensure the parent has understood the coach’s explanations and expectations. By watching the parent conduct the activity and implement the suggestions, the coach becomes immediately informed of what further modifications/suggestions are needed.
Embedded coaching, although very effective, requires the use of specific knowledge and techniques of the early interventionist. Many early interventionists shy away from using embedded coaching during the return demonstration aspect of a parent-infant session, perhaps because they do not have the confidence or knowledge of the skills required to implement it. This course will describe “embedded coaching” during return demonstration, which has been found to be extremely effective in accelerating parents’ progress in acquiring skill in working with their children.
This presentation will describe for the participants, through lecture, discussion, video tape and video analysis, and interactive activities how to effectively implement return demonstration and embedded coaching.
- At the end of this session, participants will be able to list at least three components of embedded coaching.
- At the end of this session, participants will be able to describe at least three strategies for engaging parents and primary caregivers in parent-infant sessions.
- At the end of this session, participants will be able to explain and demonstrate “embedded coaching” and “return demonstration.”
