Positive Parent Coaching is an intensive in-home program consisting of a 12-week curriculum based on the STEP (Systematic Training for Effective Parenting) approach. Topics include understanding child developmental stages, developing empathy, using appropriate discipline, and improving communication and respect. The parent coach acts as a teacher and mentor, and provides support and feedback to you while actively working on goals identified by your family. The coach meets with your family 2-3 times per week for the first four weeks, followed by weekly visits for eight weeks.

The Positive Parenting Service includes: parent support groups, in-depth discussion of the STEP Parent Handbook, referrals and advocacy as needed, connection to community resources, collaboration with other providers, and behavior management techniques. Each parent coach administers a pre- and post- test to determine family needs and skill level, and to measure the level of improvement at the close of services.
