What Is Parent Training/Coaching?

One of the most important things you can do for your child is to take advantage of parent training / coaching services in Franklin Square, NY. With the help of Dr. Renee Clauselle of Child and Family Psychology, you will learn how to deal with your child, especially if they are dealing with behavior problems, ADD, ADHD, or other special needs.

Parents of Children with ADD

Parent training and coaching can help parents of children with ADD to become more knowledgeable and successful in raising kids. Children with ADD often exhibit behaviors that can disrupt their family life. For example, they may become easily distracted or lose needed items. 

Dr. Clauselle can provide one-on-one guidance and support to parents. In addition, some programs are designed to teach parents skills such as problem-solving, time management, and redirecting.

Parents of Children with Defiant Behaviors

A parent training program can help parents deal with their children's defiant behavior. These programs are designed to teach new skills, which can reduce stress for the whole family. The Positive Discipline program, for example, identifies a child's concern about a particular behavior and then provides techniques for dealing with it. 

Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, or PCIT, is a behavioral therapy that helps correct oppositional behavior in children. The program effectively reduces the symptoms of the oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) in children. When you and your child meet with Dr. Clauselle for parent training/coaching in Franklin Square, NY, you will learn how to apply these therapies.

Parents of Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders

Parents of children with autism spectrum disorders are exposed to high levels of stress and depression. Behavioral parent training has been found to reduce problems in children with ASD. However, research has shown that such interventions rarely address the primary developmental needs of children with ASD.

Parent coaching and training are interventions designed to increase the parents' skills and knowledge to interact effectively with their children. They teach parents skills to help their children manage challenging behavior, understand their child's developmental needs, and meet their own needs.

Parents of Teenagers

If you're a parent of teenagers, you know how tough these years can be. They can be unpredictable, defiant, and emotionally reactive. The key is to stay connected with them. During these years, parents are often worried about their children's safety. They might be concerned about bullying, or depression. 

Having a relationship with a professional can help you work through these worries and create a stronger bond with your teen.
