This presentation showcases the innovative online “Profectum Parent Toolbox” (PPT) webcast series. This FREE online resource consists of 37 webcasts that demonstrate strategies to mobilize a child’s relationship-based interactions. Parents and families are guided through the “hands-on” video series and a companion downloadable workbook to learn how to tailor interactions to their child’s individual profile. Using examples from the PPT webcast series, the goals, content, and format will be demonstrated. Preliminary research will also be presented documenting the PPT feasibility of use for parents as well as early children outcome data following parents completion and usage of the PPT strategies in the initial module (Step 1). This discussion will also address how parents, educators, paraprofessionals and professionals can use the PPT as a resource in their homes, clinics and schools.
