Implementing a Parenting Curriculum Using Implementation Science Webinar Series

Delivering the Parenting Curriculum and Using Data for Continuous Improvement: Initial Implementation

Friday, Nov. 10, 2017
2–3 p.m. EDT

 

Implementing a parenting curriculum in your program is not an event, but a process. There are four stages of implementation: exploration, installation, initial implementation, and full implementation. In this webinar series, experience these stages as you learn to choose and implement a parenting curriculum that meets the requirements in the Head Start Program Performance Standards (HSPPS).

During initial implementation, programs and community partners can implement and fine-tune their parenting curriculum delivery by starting on a small scale. In this third webinar, learn to how to use collected data to help you launch the new curriculum as part of your regular program operations.

Topics for the webinar include:

  • Testing critical elements of the chosen parenting curriculum
  • Implementing Plan-Do-Study-Act cycles (small tests of change)
  • Ensuring supports for staff implementing the curriculum are in place

Who Should Participate?

  • Head Start and Early Head Start directors, managers, program staff, teachers, and parent leaders
  • T/TA managers and providers
  • Community partners
  • Other early childhood leaders who support children and families

Newborn Behavioral Observations (NBO) — Two-Day Training (Chicago Area)

The Brazelton Institute is a training institute for clinicians and researchers, which provides training on the Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale (NBAS) and the Newborn Behavioral Observations (NBO) systems.

The NBO is a clinical relationship-building tool used by pediatricians, nurses, infant mental health specialists, physician and occupational therapists, social workers, early intervention providers, home visitors, and other allied health professionals, to help parents understand their baby’s language and promote a positive relationship between parent and child from the very beginning.

The NBAS, now in its fourth edition, is the most comprehensive examination of newborn behavior available to researchers today. It is used by researchers to study the effects of a wide range of perinatal variables such as prenatal exposure to alcohol, tobacco, cocaine and other drugs, low birth weight, environmental toxins, cesarean section, and other pre- and perinatal variables.
