It highlights how to employ mentoring methods to foster a high level of engagement. Empowering parents starts by exchanging critical information and jointly defining goals. Doors are then open for teaching parents to use specific intervention techniques and procedures. When parents gain new insights and skills, they become real partners in the treatment process. Examples are provided for identifying specific techniques parents can use. Recommendations are also made for dealing with challenges such as limited time and potentially adversarial situations. Throughout the discussion you will be encouraged to reflect on your own students, colleagues, and program.

The Value of Engaging Parents as Partners in School-Based SLP Programs

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Parents bear responsibility for making decisions about all aspects of their child's life. SLPs, educators, and health care professionals can increase a child's potential for success by engaging their parents to prepare them for their critical roles in their child's health care, education, and therapy intervention. Unfortunately, many professionals are reluctant to work with parents, and parents often express concerns as well. This course describes the challenges and benefits of working with parents and other caregivers. It prepares professionals to establish meaningful relationships with parents. We can employ a mentoring model to help parents better understand their child and to play a key role in their child's success. SLPs and other therapists, educators, and health care providers will be motivated to take a fresh approach to establishing meaningful partnerships with parents. Throughout the course, you will be encouraged to reflect on your program and take steps to make changes that will yield great results.
