With the tendency of low-income African American and Latino children identified at-risk for school readiness and school success compared to their early-childhood counterparts, Head Start personnel are challenged to examine the role of family strengths in the promotion of academic success for these populations. This article provides a rationale for the use of an empirically supported, strengths-based parenting program, Child Parent Relationship Training (CPRT), when working with low-income Head Start African American and Latino families. An examination of the shared objectives of CPRT and key domains within the Head Start Child Outcomes Framework (2003) are also highlighted.
