Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Coaching is a family-centered model of intervention where therapists guide parents through the problem-solving process to attain self-identified goals for their child. This study reveals that in early intervention, coaching is beneficial to caregivers in various roles to improve satisfaction with the child’s self-care performance and caregiver confidence. Caregivers can take an active, collaborative role in the shared decision-making process for their child’s healthcare with positive outcomes.
