Evidence Based Practices with Head Start Students At-Risk for Later Behavior Problems: Using an Evidence-Based Parent Training Program

Michigan State will examine the acceptability, integrity and effectiveness of the use of the Incredible Years Parent Training Program in a self-administered format to parents of children enrolled in a local Head Start program. Specifically, the study objectives are to investigate the use of the program on improving children's behavioral functioning and parent interactions with their children within actual practice and bring research into practice in a university-community collaboration. Study participants will include 40 Head Start parents who rated their children as being significantly at-risk for behavioral problems. The participants will be randomly assigned to receive the intervention from within the agency or outside of the agency. Parents will complete the Devereux Early Childhood Assessment (DECA), the Parent Practices Interview, the Behavior Assessment System for Children-Monitor for ADHD, and the Global Change Form to measure children's behaviors. Results of the study are expected to contribute to the current knowledge on effective treatment of at-risk children and the prevention of behavioral problems.
