Helping Patients Navigate the Current Landscape of Genetic Testing During Pregnancy and Ensuring They Receive Reliable Support and Information

The University of Kentucky's Human Development Institute (HDI) has created a National Center for Prenatal and Postnatal Down Syndrome Resources that oversees three programs that complement each other in providing important resources and information for new and expectant parents learning about a diagnosis of Down syndrome. These programs include the Lettercase program, Brighter Tomorrows, and Down Syndrome Pregnancy. The Center provides this clearinghouse of nationally recommended resources so that medical practitioners, expectant parents, and new parents have access to accurate, current and balanced information about Down syndrome. The activities of the Center include the dissemination of free resources to medical providers and their patients, the development of new materials, and national medical outreach through presentations at medical conferences and journals.

EIEC Webinar: The Power of Parenting for Young Children with Disabilities: A Parent-Child Interaction Measurement Tool, Research Findings and Suggestions for Use

This webinar will present psychometric and administration information on the PICCOLO and its use as an assessment tool. The results of research using the PICCOLO with parents and children where the child has an identified disability will be presented. Information on how the PICCOLO can be incorporated into early intervention efforts will be discussed. Strategies for using the PICCOLO in practice will be described. This information will be useful to anyone interested in early intervention with families who have a child with a disability and families where the parent may have a disability. The message for the field is that common parenting behaviors, in which parents typically engage, are important predictors of later outcomes for children with identified disabilities, and these parenting behaviors need to play a more salient role in Part C services.
