What is a Certified Special Needs Life Quality Coach?
As part of its mission to change the way the world views individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, the Training, Education, Research, & Innovation (TERI, Inc.) is offering the industry’s first specialization coursework designed to train professionals and other interested individuals to work as Special Needs Life Quality Coaches. Special Needs Life Quality Coaches work with families to ensure that they, and their children or adults with special needs, have access to the support, encouragement, resources and knowledge to lead happy fulfilling lives. Coaches work with families and individuals to determine what they need in order to meet personal goals, and they establish and monitor action plans to help them reach these goals. Coaches are NOT counselors; they are an extension of the family devoted to improving quality of life.
Why are Special Needs Life Coaches Needed?
Parents commit their lives to their children with developmental disabilities and in the process they often lose themselves. You can help these parents by becoming a Special Needs Life Coach. With your support as their coach, they can get their lives back. There are 55 million individuals with one or more developmental disabilities. A Special Needs Life Coach has the opportunity to work with these individuals and their families to create a better life for all. Become a part of a growing and critically needed profession while helping others— it will change your life, and the lives of those with autism and developmental disabilities.
How Do I Become a Special Needs Life Quality Coach?
At this time, TERI is the only organization offering a certificate in this coaching specialization. The 16-week Special Needs Life Quality Coaching course is provided online with flexible hours so that working professionals have the time they need to complete assignments and connect with their student cohort. The classes are experiential and designed to assure that students have all the tools and support they need to go into private practice upon graduation.
