Event description

Description

Professionals interested in developing their knowledge and skills in working with parents with intellectual disabilities are invited to this full-day Parenting Research Centre workshop with international expert Professor Maurice Feldman.

You will learn about the Step-by-Step Parenting Program - an empirically-supported, competence-based model for parents with learning difficulties and their children. The workshop will also cover:

  • How to provide a comprehensive parenting assessment using a contextual model that examines external and internal influences on effective parenting
  • How to apply the model to assessments that include direct observation of parenting skills
  • Practical application of the content using a case study and observational parenting checklists.
