Coaching, Embedding, Early Intervention


Coaching and embedding has become an increasingly popular service delivery model in early childhood and has led to higher developmental outcomes for children and increased caregiver confidence and competence in working with their children with delays or disabilities. Coaching and embedding is an evidence based practice and considered a recommended practice by the Division for Early Childhood of the Council for Exceptional Children as a service delivery model for early intervention. Coaching involves many strategies and can be delivered through a variety of modalities including in-person or virtual services. This project includes a review of literature on coaching and embedding in early childhood, development of three coaching videos, a summary reflection on the process for developing coaching videos and next steps for implementation with families, and the outcomes of early intervention.

Key words: early intervention, coaching, embedding
