Group Parent Training Combined with Follow-Up Coaching for Parents of Children with Developmental Delays
Barton, Erin E.; Lissman, Dana Cohen
Infants and Young Children, v28 n3 p220-236 Jul-Sep 2015
The purpose of this study was to examine the relation between group training using an abbreviated version of the Incredible Years parent training with family coaching and positive parenting practices. Two at-­risk mothers and their young children with disabilities participated in the study. Both mothers were enrolled in a group parent training program through their local early intervention agency. This study extends the research on parent training by examining the relation between group training with individualized, evidence-­based coaching and positive parenting practices for parents of children with developmental disabilities. Results suggest coaching combined with group training is related to low to moderate increases in positive parenting practices. More intensive, individualized coaching for at-­risk parents might maximize treatment outcomes of group parent training programs.
