is offering

Developmental Parenting for Practitioners and PICCOLO

training workshop


This two day workshop will be based on the principles in the book "Developmental Parenting. The first day will focus on Developmental Parenting and the second day will focus on the use of the PICCOLO assessment tool.  Lori Roggman will be facilitating the workshop with Mark Innocenti. This workshop will be valuable for home visitors, family support workers and early childhood professionals. The focus of the developmental parenting program is on showing professionals how to put parents in charge of supporting their children's development- resulting in strong parent-child relationships, healthy families and improved school readiness.


What is Developmental Parenting?

Developmental Parenting refers both to parenting as a support for children's development and to a particular approach to intervention services in which practitioners use a strength-based approach to identify and support positive parenting behaviors that promote children's early health and development.


Whats PICCOLO? “ An Assessment Tool for Developmental Parenting

PICCOLO (Parenting Interactions with Children: Checklist of Observations Linked to Outcomes) is an observational measure of developmental parenting. Accurate observations of positive parenting behaviors can help practitioners identify Developmental Parenting behaviors to encourage and expand on. PICCOLO is a valid, reliable, user-friendly assessment tool that guides observations of parenting behaviors in 4 domains: Affection, Responsiveness, Encouragement, and Teaching. Several video observations of parent-child interactions will be part of the training and discussion.
