Life Skill Coach
Does your child or teen need support and guidance in learning vital life skills (eg. cooking, laundry, budgeting, making purchases etc)? Our life skill coaches will meet with you and your child or teen to create a goal plan and then work with your child on a regular basis to learn the life skills they need.
Social Skill Coach
If your child struggles with their social skills, a social skill coach can help! When learning social skills, it is imperative that these skills are rehearsed and practiced in real life situations. Our social skill coaches are trained in the best methods for supporting your child’s social skill development. In collaboration with you, the social skill coach will develop a treatment plan for addressing your child’s social skill needs, and work with your child to rehearse and practice social skills in real life situations (either within, or outside of your home).
