Evidence based Child Coaching versus Belief-based Child Coaching 

'Evidence-basedí is a scientific approach whereby professional practice is capable of being justified in terms of sound evidence based upon a process of methodical clinical and industry research, evaluation, and the utilisation of up-to-date systematic research findings to support decisions about practice. 

Evidence-based child coaching links theories and research from the behavioral sciences eg; neuropsychology, neuroscience, cognitive-behavioral psychology with coaching best-practice.

Evidence-based child coaching is a way of distinguishing professional practice grounded in proven science versus the simplistic, outdated coaching approach popularized by many coaching associations and coach training providers engaged in mass-marketing courses open to anyone.

 
Evidence based child coaching with industry best practice invalidates previously accepted child developmental coaching practises and replaces them with new ones that are proven and more powerful, more accurate, more efficacious, and safer.
 
Evidence based child coaching allows the practitioner to provide clients (parents or caregiver) more effective and accurate assessment, more informed program planning and selection of the appropriate, up-to-date coaching methodology.

Child coaches tend to operate in a very high degree of isolation. Research has shown that coaches who work primarily alone and do not acquire latest evidence based coaching knowledge -tend to: invent things as they go along and rely on their very basic level training, books and online information (which frequently results in greater myth and confusion than improved clarity of knowledge). 

Belief-based Child Coaching
Belief based child coaching is a common and traditional form of coaching mainly provided by parents, caregivers, child care professionals and educators. Its guidelines for practices are usually a mix of personal experiences, some basic education about training and professional development, selected incomplete knowledge of coaching practices, and a self-belief in the practitionerís coaching approach. Any changes in coaching practices usually only occur through a process of self-selection.

The accumulated knowledge of belief-based child coaching is subjective, biased, unstructured, and mostly lacking in accountability. Belief-based child coaching also includes pseudo-scientific coaching. Pseudo-scientists (versus qualified behavioral scientists) attempt to give the impression of scientific knowledge but invariably their knowledge is incomplete resulting in false/erroneous postulations.

Today, belief-based child coaching is still the foundation of most institutional (schools, child centers etc ) coaching programs. Most of these institutions resist any contrary evidence that might challenge their beliefs and internal human development / training practices / standards. Many practitioners either are unaware of their level of practice or simply do not want to hear that they require further instructed, more advanced learning.

Evidence-based Child Coaching versus Belief-based (B-B) Novice Child Coaching 
-
Evidence-based child coaching utilizes behavior coaching models that make predictions that can be verified.

- Novice reasoning is characterised by B-B coaches because they have lower levels of validated procedural knowledge and relevant experience. This lack of procedural knowledge has an impact on how novices coach children. Novices who do not have any history of best practice situational contexts find it difficult to judge the relevance and importance of certain aspects of a task. The notion of pattern recognition or forward reasoning is another key component which separates novice coaches from qualified, certified, behavior-focused practitioners who are able to use reliable and proven behavioral coaching models.

- Belief-based child coaching attempts to explain why something happened with little chance of ever testing the associations depicted in the explanation. Vagueness or an inability to predict can be attractive to some child coaches because they cannot be held accountable for their results. These "coaches" propagate the Principle of Uncertainty beyond reasonable limits so that any error can be disguised as uncontrolled "nature" rather than deliberate disorder. Evidence therefore, can only place unnecessary constraints and accountability upon their part-time of full-time coaching.

Child coaching practices are typically disordered and simplistic in institutions, government agencies and countries/regions where coaching is being introduced. The coaching program sponsors and casual or full-time coaching practitioners who lead these coaching initiatives need to undertake appropriate, modern behavior-focused coach training and re-skilling in order to introduce more evidence based practices and better results.
