Parents and teachers play a critical role in supporting the learning, occupational performance and social participation of their children, particularly when children are challenged by tasks that are typically achievable by their peers. Parents and teachers also have needs and aspirations related to their own learning and performance within their parenting roles that are relevant to providing family-centred services. 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 and teachers to achieve goals for themselves, children and/or their families. In OPC therapists utilise specific processes of Connection, Structure and Sharing that facilitate client engagement and facilitate goal achievement.
