The week's events
- Parent Coaching
Being a parent is among the most difficult jobs in the universe. We are called to teach, model, love, support, comfort, advise, and give discipline. Sometimes these roles conflict with each other and we are pulled in opposing directions. Add in our fast-paced environment and the impact of social media and this job can be monumentally difficult. Parent coaching provides guidance to parents and helps families consider what is going well and what challenges need to be addressed. All kids want to be successful, and parent coaching can give parents the tools to teach kids the skills and resilience they need.
Parenting a child with autism, anxiety, ADHD, and other neurological challenges adds another layer of complexity. Despite the best advice from friends, family, and others, sometimes additional tools and strategies are needed.
Lighthouse is pleased to offer parent coaching one Saturday a month. These 45-minute sessions can stand alone as one-time supports or can be on-going coaching sessions. Prior to the first session, our Social Learning Coordinator, Jolene Farmer, sends a skills inventory for parents to complete. Together with Jolene, parents will prioritize goals and decide on an action plan designed especially for their family.
Our next available session is October 20th. There is one remaining slot available on this day at 1:15pm. The next upcoming dates for coaching sessions is 11/17 from 10am to 2pm.
Please contact Jolene Farmer to schedule

Tailoring, Targeting, And Addressing What Matters: Supporting People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Who are Living With Dementia
This presentation will discuss the state of dementia care research and its implications for supporting people with intellectual disabilities who are living with dementia. Drawing upon tested efficacious interventions, specific interventions will be discussed both in terms of their outcomes as well as their essential elements and treatment principles that can be applied to working with people with intellectual disabilities living with dementia. Interventions will be shared that view the individual within their living context and address modifiable factors that may be contributing to care challenges. Interventions assume a person-centric and tailored approach and address the needs of the person as well as their care partners to help support quality of life.
