The Incredible Years® Series
Intervention Programs for Parents of Toddlers
Our parenting programs are delivered to groups of parents/caregivers according to their child’s age group: babies (0-12 months), toddlers (1-3 years), preschoolers (3-6 years), and school age (6-12 years).
Check out the early intervention toddler parenting programs we offer below.
Training workshops to equip group leaders with the skills needed to deliver the programs are purchased separately from the program sets below.
Toddler Parenting Program (Basic)
In the Toddler Parenting Program (Basic), parents learn how to:
- Help their toddlers feel loved and secure
- Encourage their toddler’s language, social, and emotional development.
- Establish clear and predictable routines.
- Handle separations and reunions
- Use positive discipline to manage misbehavior.
Attentive Parenting Program
The Attentive Parenting® program is a “universal” parenting program. It can be offered to ALL parents to promote their children’s emotional regulation, social competence, problem solving, reading and school readiness.
This is not a program for children with significant behavior or developmental problems or family mental health difficulties, although it may be used as a supplement to the Basic programs or for follow up booster sessions.
School Readiness Program
The School Readiness program is a parenting program designed to promote preschool children’s school readiness. The objectives are to improve children’s school readiness by enhancing their language, reading, and social skills.
Autism Spectrum & Language Delays Parenting Program
This program is offered to parents of young children on the Autism spectrum or with language delays to promote children’s emotional regulation, social competence, language skills, school readiness, and relationships with others.
Because many group leaders delivering the Toddler or Preschool Basic programs often have several parents in their group with children on the spectrum or with language delays, some of these vignettes can be easily used to replace or supplement several of the Toddler or Preschool Basic program vignettes.
Home Visiting Coach Model
The Incredible Years® offers a Home Visiting Coach protocol for Baby, Toddler, Preschool, and School Age Basic Parent Programs. The Home Visiting Coach model can be used in conjunction with the group-based model, or the entire curriculum can be delivered with individual families entirely in the homes. Our Home Coaching manuals help facilitators tailor the content of the programs for individual delivery in the homes. To implement in the home, facilitators need the full program curriculum kit, plus the supplemental manual for home coaching.
