Abstract

The purpose of the life-enhancement coach session is to help parents generalize and apply their previously mastered CDI-T and PDI-T skills (e.g., PRIDE skills, CARES steps, under-reaction, redirection, guided compliance, directive language stimulation coaching) to everyday, real-life situations that arise in the lives of toddlers and their families. It is critical that therapists empower parents by guiding them to apply previously learned developmental knowledge and mastered skills to such situations. Additionally, the ongoing importance of CDI-T and PDI-T skills during at-home practice provides the foundation of this phase of the intervention.
