A behavior coach is someone who has significant experience in behavior modification and trained in ABA principals. A behavior coach has the ability to work with parents and is trained in parent coaching. Our experiences include working with multi-cultures, all ages including adults and typical functioning children with problem behaviors. Our experiences extend to working with children in clinical, office, educational, and various settings. Our expertise extends over various types of diagnoses & disabilities such as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bi-Polar Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyper Activity Disorder, Autism Spectrum Disorder, etc.
We teach behavior modification techniques and use principals of ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) in addition to CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), T.o.M. (Theory of Mind) and other scientifically-based approaches. We believe in teaching parents and children the tools and techniques to use on their own to create positive behaviors. Through many years of implementing this program we have found that the intensity of this model works best when decreasing problematic behaviors. We fade the intensity of coaching out as quickly as possible after training parents on techniques, so when the counseling is completed, parents have the ability and tools to handle any problematic behavior that may come up.
Once trained on behavior techniques and principals parents will have the tools and techniques to implement behavioral strategies and methodologies on their own.
This is all dependent on need of your family.
