How does coaching work?
1. Download the DrLullaby mobile app on iOS
Are coaching sessions a replacement for the DrLullaby app?
No. All families must download and use the DrLullaby app before scheduling telehealth consults. DrLullaby experts are trained to help families with adherence to the strategies as well as tailoring and addressing barriers to optimizing success with sleep. We expect the combination of the evidence-based sleep strategies delivered in the app WITH the expertise of our doctoral-level coaches to produce the best results for families who need additional support.
Who is coaching for?
DrLullaby's team of doctoral-level coaches can work with parents of children from infancy through age 18, as well as older children and teens when appropriate.
If I am joining as a parent, should my child attend the video visit?
We encourage you to discuss this with your provider in your initial visit. The majority of our visits are focused on helping parents enable behavior change, but there are instances where having a child present would be beneficial.
Who are the DrLullaby providers?
Providers are top-tier behaviorists. Each of our coaches hold a doctorate (i.e., PhD or PsyD) and is an expert in evidence-based behavioral treatment for pediatrics. They bring an understanding of the DrLullaby interventions and dynamics of parent-child interactions.
Do I need a referral?
You do not need a referral to sign up for these services.
What should I expect at my first visit?
Your first appointment will be 30 minutes in length and will help your behaviorist fully understand your challenges with sleep. In the first session you will review your New Family Form and leave with a set of concrete steps to try before your next session.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for my visit?
In advance of your first visit you will be asked to fill out a New Family Form. This form will ask you to share some information from the DrLullaby app. It would be helpful to have the app and the information you’re tracking in it available during your call.
What is your cancellation policy?
Visits must be cancelled or rescheduled more than 24 hours in advance.
Can I schedule additional visits?
Yes! We suggest each family start with a minimum of 4 visits, but for existing patients, additional time can be scheduled with your coach directly through our website.
