Coaching Documents

The NPDC coaching manual was developed to support practitioners’ implementation of evidence-based practices in programs that serve children and youth with autism spectrum disorders. The manual describes:

  • the roles and responsibilities of coaches and inviting partners;
  • three types of coaching;
  • the processes involved in coaching;
  • elements of effective coaching;
  • the integration of coaching within the partnership between states and the NPDC; and,
  • provides guidelines for providing content on coaching through professional development.

The coaching log is used by the coach and inviting partner to document the cyclical and evolving process of coaching and it’s outcomes. This one-page document records all of the aspects of the pre-conference observation conference, observation, and post-observation conference. The log is completed by the coach and is maintained by the inviting partner as a confidential record of progress toward coaching targets.
