Welcome! The Parent-Family Coaching Program consists of several courses and activities.
Firstly, the Prep Program is a common starting point for all students since ACPI has open enrollment year round. The prep activities are on- line. They are designed to help you think about and formulate your business. Dr. Goode serves as your advisor or coach.
Secondly, the Parent-Family Coach Training is part of the program that focuses on coaching skills, ethics, philosophy, practice labs and how to coach parents and children. Yes, we cover a lot of great material.
Thirdly, the Systemized Business Steps in the next course. You;ll bring your ideas and values that you discerned in the prep course to this course for implementation and delivery.
Fourthly, take a specialized niche class through ACPI. We offer several, the most popular being Coaching Families with Special Needs. This course was designed by and comes straight from the heart of Trainer Deborah Beasley. She is a parent coach, trainer, adoptive-foster mother, author and all round great person. Consider the fact that in the near future, in the United States, statistics predict that half of all children will have a learning, health, or medical issue requiring special assistance and special education.

My name is Todd Corbin and I am a certified parenting consultant, mindfulness instructor, and educational resource. I speak professionally to and coach students, teachers, and parents on ways of using life experience, emotional literacy, and perspective to positively transform present moment awareness. I was labeled learning disabled in first grade, and grew up with that label.
The Academy for Coaching Parents certification program which I completed in the fall 2011 had a HUGE impact on my parent coaching business. By selecting to focus on the special need’s niche, I was able get a clear focus on the business and marketing side. With Caron’s help, I gained a real detailed perspective of the dynamic of families of kids with special needs. ACPI’s program, like the discipline of mindfulness, allows one to develop an inner awareness of the possibilities and potentials that we all have.Todd Corbin
