Stage-Setting: Review family updates, concerns, priorities, and practice
Observation & Intervention: Observe caregiver-child routines, teach & implement speech & language therapy strategies
Problem-Solving & Reflection: Identify problems and collaborate on ways to solve them, reflect on strategy practice
Plan: Develop a plan for daily/weekly practice, generalizing to other routines, and expanding future speech & language goals

The family-coaching model emphasizes that children learn best within their natural environments, with the people they spend the most time with, throughout daily routines. It utilizes caregiver training so that speech & language practice and progress can be ongoing throughout each day! It is highly supported by research and evidence!
