Occupational Performance Coaching (OPC) is proposed as an intervention which is family- and occupation-centred, enablement-focused and research informed. OPC involves working alongside parents to achieve parents’ goals for themselves, their children and/or their families. In OPC therapists utilise performance analysis, problem-solving, occupational and disability knowledge to guide parents’ exploration of changes that facilitate goal achievement. This workshop aims to provide therapists with an understanding of how to effectively use parent coaching within their services.

Self- regulation is a learned, developmental skill and is a key building block which underpins a child’s ability to mature emotionally, cognitively and socially. It directly influences a child’s occupational performance in self-care, academic and social participation. Increasingly, occupational therapists are asked to provide an understanding of challenges to self-regulation experienced by children and offer suggestions for strategies which may enhance their participation across the tasks they want and need to do.
