Prevention Focus: Secondary – Parent Education and Support
The Southwest Early Childhood Center serves Title I Preschool Program and Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Program students and their families. Service area includes Cole and Callaway counties. Many of the families served are affected by poverty and nearly 80% of the ECSE students have one or more developmental delays. This project implements Conscious Discipline©, an evidenced-based parent education curriculum built on current brain research, child development information and developmentally appropriate parenting practices. The curriculum is designed to empower parents to consciously respond to, rather than unconsciously react to, everyday conflict.
