Parent Coaches are trained volunteers and members of the Kiind community who offer to share their lived experience of raising a child with disability to support and guide another Kiind parent.
Kiind Coaches tend to be further along in their parenting journey and are ideally placed to help another parent develop the knowledge and skills they need to support their child’s unique needs and navigate the complex systems and services that are often involved.
The coaching process involves working one-on-one with another parent and may include setting goals, creating a plan of action and working through challenges as they arise.
