Abstract (Summary)

This parent training program was designed to be utilized within the Early Head Start Program. The proposed program is an eight-module program design to be implemented in eight sessions, two hours each, for a one-month duration. The aim of the parent training program is to increase parent participation in their child’s therapy sessions. The participants are parents of children with developmental delays who are found to be eligible for the Early Head Start Program. Through attending the parent training program, several outcomes are likely to occur including, increased social and emotional developmental outcomes for the child, a stronger parent-child bond, an increased awareness for the parent regarding how to effectively promote learning for their child with special needs, a more authoritative parenting style to be adopted by the parents, and a decreased likelihood of abuse and neglect for the child. The proposed parent training program provides a parent training implementation outline, an initial parent survey, and several quizzes to determine the parent’s competency throughout the modules. Suggestions for future research, discussions of strengths and limitations, and program evaluations were offered for discussion.
