Overview of Coaching Fidelity OLD

In parent coaching, measures of fidelity can be taken on the coach’s ability to effectively engage with the parent using a coaching style of interaction and to effectively engage the parent in all of the coaching practice characteristics. A measure of fidelity can also be taken on the parent’s ability to implement the skills and strategies discussed and practiced with the coach in the therapy session. Finally, data on child goals is taken during each coaching session.  There is nothing more motivating to a parent than seeing the changes in their child's development.
