This Workshop 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. This unique learning resource is presented in a parent-friendly manner that enhances adult learning: all strategies are demonstrated through video examples with children of all ages and developmental profiles. By completing the PPT Webcast series, parents will gain a greater understanding of the uniqueness of their child, and how they can better connect and foster their relationship as a foundation for enhanced developmental growth. Using examples from the Webcast series, the goals, content, and format will be demonstrated. Beta testing research will be presented to show how parents helped shape the final product. Exceptional Minds students will discuss the animation/editing completed for the series. This Workshop will also address how parents, educators, paraprofessionals and professionals can use the PPT as a resource in their homes, clinics and schools.
