Video: "Parent Coach" Bonnie Bogen - a resource for parents of kids on the autism spectrum


Seeking advice from seasoned experts that have "been there, done that" is nothing new. "Parent Coaches" - now a certified position - are behavior specialists that assist parents of kids on the spectrum in first understanding their child's behavior, then help "reframe" the event with tools that facilitate "appropriate" actions.

Bonnie Bogen has been working with special needs kids for 30 years. Fifteen of them have been with parents and kids on the spectrum. Bonnie has "been there" with meltdowns, power struggles, establishing routines and much more.

In this interview Bonnie describes what a parent coach is, what they do and how they can help you in meeting the daily challenges of life on the spectrum.
