Coaching for Parents

What is coaching for parents and family members?

Parent coaching offers one-to-one focused problem-solving and skills-building sessions designed to help parents identify practical strategies they can use to address their family’s unique needs at home, school, work, or out in the community. 

Questions about autism or AANE’s services?

Schedule a call to speak with a member of AANE’s staff, or fill out a form to be contacted by email.

Here are some of the problems we’ve helped parents address through parent coaching:
  • “Autism is new to me and I don’t know where to begin. What does this mean for my child’s future and our future?”
  • “I feel frustrated and confused by my child’s school program or team.”
  • “My son knows he is Autistic but doesn’t accept the diagnosis. How do I get him to ask for help?”
  • “Things are going well but I want help planning for transitions, independence and adulthood.”
  • “Our adult offspring no longer communicates with us. How can I stay connected to him?.”
  • “I’m concerned that my adult son will make mistakes that will have major consequences. How do I keep him out of trouble?”
Through coaching, we help parents:
  • Parent on the same page and improve communication with their child.
  • Target the right benefits, support resources and providers to help their child and their family reach their goals.
  • Identify and try out practical strategies for changing behaviors (both theirs and their child’s).
  • Create a roadmap and prioritize where they need to spend time, money, and energy to achieve their goals.
