A program which is specific to parents of children 17 years of age or younger with a disability.
Pacekids provides the Stepping Stones Triple P Positive Parenting Program, which is specific to parents of children 17 years or younger with a disability. Funded through Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD), Pacekids is qualified to offer Standard Stepping Stones and Group Stepping Stones.
Purpose of Program
The Stepping Stones Triple P program is a system of supports offered through weekly sessions in the privacy of the families own home. The sessions provide parents with a selection of strategies specific to goals identified by parents – specifically related to their child’s behaviour and development. Triple P aims to work with parents to use Positive Parenting strategies to develop a positive relationship with their child, encourage appropriate behavior, teach their child new skills, manage misbehavior and implement planned activities routines for high-risk parenting situations. With the support of the Practitioner, parents set their own goals and decide which parenting strategies to implement based upon their values and needs of the child and family.
Standard Stepping Stones
The Standard Stepping Stones program allows for parents to meet individually with a practitioner 1 hour each week for 3-6 months. Four of these sessions are Practice Sessions in which the parent has the opportunity to implement the new skills and strategies they have learned and receive feedback. The program includes a Family Workbook with information and exercises for parents as well as video clips from the DVD A Survival Guide for Families with a Child who has a Disability. This program offers a combination of centre- and home-based sessions.
Group Stepping Stones
In the Group Stepping Stones program, small groups of parents meet with a practitioner for five sessions and individual families are followed up with three 15 minute phone calls at home to discuss the family’s progress and support individual needs. The group program includes a Group Workbook and video clips from the DVD A Survival Guide for Families with a Child who has a Disability. This program is centre-based.
