Project Main Details
The Incredible Years early childhood programs focus on developing a child’s self-esteem and self-confidence while teaching important social and emotional skills. Children learn critical skills for success in school and in life such as expressing feelings, managing anger, problem solving and following rules.
Educators recognize that investing time to develop social and emotional skills in early childhood can have a positive, lasting impact on key measures important to schools
Making the connection between home and school is important. During the program, parents are informed about the skills being taught in the classroom and invited to participate in the same activities at home.
(version 1 of this line)A complementary program-The Incredible Years Family Life program- helps parents and caregivers build skills and develop more positive interactions with their children
(version 2 of same line above) The Incredible Years Family Life program is a complementary program for parents and caregivers that helps them build skills and develop more positive interactions with their children
In a perfect world, it would be easy to maintain on-going communication and collaboration between parents, teachers, and presenters. However, maintaining these connections can be challenging- especially in large, rural communities like Clinton and Warren Counties. Transportation barriers, financial issues, sickness, conflicts with work schedules or a lack of child care options can all be significant obstacles to success.
Thanks to the Early Childhood Mental Health Innovations Mini-grant, Solutions can train additional staff in the Incredible Years programs, and offer a free training for local teachers, so they can implement the Dina Classroom program in their preschool and Kindergarten classrooms and daycare centers. This will increase the number of children and families benefiting from the programs.
But what if there was a way to use technology to make maintaining these connections easier?? What if we could efficiently provide long-term support and collaboration? The Incredible Years Forum was created as a way for participants to share ideas, ask questions, and offer each other support… in a way that circumvents many of the barriers that hinder face-to-face meetings.
We’re just beginning, but feel free to contact us to learn about our progress or to see if we can help you set up a discussion forum in your own community.
