The Stepping Stones program is part of the evidence-based Triple P (Positive Parenting Program) and is proven to reduce behavior problems in children. This particular series has a focus on communication, problem-solving, self-care, and self-regulation.
From the beginning to the end of the series, there was a significant decrease in the intensity of child misbehavior. Five participants were above the Intensity Scale clinical cut point at pre-test compared to two at post-test on the ECBI (Eyberg Child Behavior Inventory).
"I am so thankful that the Autism Society of Southern Arizona has put on a free Stepping Stones Training class for our community. Before getting a diagnosis parents are often in the dark with how to cope with problem behaviors and this class was so helpful in filling that gap. I loved how interactive the program is and how it has helped me address behaviors I am seeing in my child right now." Michele, parent in the Stepping Stones program.
The program involves 12 group sessions, and 3 individual telephone consultations to assist parents to refine the use of their parenting skills and develop independent problems solving skills. Registration for this session has ended.
