When?: Depending on the severity of the behaviors, behavior coaches will provide 1-1 behavior coaching anywhere from 1-5 times per week with sessions lasting between 1-5 hours. Everything is dependent upon an intake assessment which details the child/adolescent’s struggles and determines how often and where the behavior coach would be best utilized.
Who?: Any child/adolescent age 6-18 may enroll in our behavior coaching program. This can be done by having the behavioral health case manager submit a referral to firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling our office directly if there is no behavioral health case manager involved in your situation. Our office number is 480-275-4202.
