24 Apr Parent Coaching – Join the Balance Program
Parents, let Juliet and Letitia help you to address emerging problem behaviours at home.
Why Coach Parents?
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, parent management training should be the first-line intervention for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or disruptive behaviours. Read the article here. Adding at-home parent intervention to other treatment and schooling options is an effective way to decrease aggression, defiance, and oppositional behaviour.
What is Newberry offering to help parents?
The Balance Program is designed specifically to support children who are displaying minor behaviour problems at home, such as following instructions. Newberry Park is offering a first-of-its-kind virtual coaching program for the parents and caregivers of children with ASD and those at risk of ASD.
We will support and coach you. The coaching is two-fold: it will teach you the skills you need and then support you with implementing them within your family. This will help you address problem behaviour before it becomes entrenched. You and your coach will work together on optimising your home-based sessions with your child.
The program begins with meetings with your coach, but most of it takes place through online coaching sessions. The interventions you’ll learn through the coaching program have been clinically proven to have long-term positive effects on the common symptoms of ASD as well as the future development of skills.
The program is delivered by highly trained behavioural health coaches with expertise in helping children and caregivers with common challenges associated with autism. Our leaders are Juliet Newberry, our BCBA who leads the program, and Letitia Bouwer, a qualified ABA therapist with 11 years of experience.
“We have seen great benefits when families have the skills to support and supplement what their children receive through schooling or therapy,” says Juliet Newberry BCBA, the program’s clinical director. “Supporting the parents of children with ASD greatly increases the overall well-being of the families we work with. We have crafted our version of the Balance Program for families at all stages of the journey with their child. I wish we’d been able to offer this long ago.”
Parents participating have reported not only decreases in problem behaviour but also increases in their child’s communication, social, and cooperation skills.
The program has been designed to be easy for busy parents to implement. Our coaches are there to support you all the way.
You’ll be spending a little focused time each day with your child and the benefits are enormous!
- Helping your child deal with their frustration when they are told “No”’
- Improving communication and social skills
- Making cooperation easier and more fun
- Developing the skills that reduce the stress of playing and working with others
- Working with a coach on challenges specific to your family
