Event Details

Do you work with parents who have learning difficulties?

Who should attend?

Parenting Young Children (PYC) is suitable for practitioners who work with parents in their homes and have young children aged 0-6 years. Practitioners who work in the disability, health, child protection, welfare or family support sector will find this program invaluable.

What you will learn

Parenting Young Children (PYC) is a home-based parent education program delivered by trained professionals to parents with an intellectual disability.

Parents strengthen their skills and confidence in the following areas:

  • basic child care skills
  • positive parent-child interactions
  • confidence in their ability to parent their children.

The Parenting Research Centre developed PYC as part of the Healthy Start strategy which aims to build the capacity of professionals working across the child welfare, family support and disability sectors.

Our specialist implementation team helps organisations build best-practice processes into their work and deliver the evidence-based PYC program to families. We also offer post-training support to embed the program into the work of an organisation.

The PYC program has also been trialled in Sweden where agencies are investigating factors that influence the successful adoption and implementation of the program. We have also trained two Swedish facilitators to deliver the professional training in Swedish; this has reduced the challenges to translation and understanding that were experienced when we delivered the training in English.

The program is also being trialled in Japan with a small number of families.
