This volume is directed toward research to practice issues related to partnering with families of children birth through age 5. This monograph and the next monograph focuses on family and school involvement issues in two age categories. This sixth volume analyzes family involvement practices across a variety of settings and programs at the early childhood level. The seventh monograph in this series addresses research and practices related to family–school issues in middle and secondary schools. The chapters address, to varying degrees, five themes based on the principles of familycentered partnerships: 1. Recognizing and respecting one anther’s knowledge and expertise; 2. Sharing information through twoway communication; 3. Sharing power and decision making; 4. Acknowledging and respecting diversity; and 5. Creating networks of support The monograph supports the accomplishment of these goals as a whole by providing important insights about exemplary programs and promising practices, informed by current research. Also it highlights policies and theoretical perspectives relevant to these aims. Individual chapters offer a variety of practical strategies and recommendations that families, early childhood practitioners, policymakers, and researchers can use to enhance their knowledge and strengthen their skills for partnering effectively.

This accessible and engaging work introduces current and future teachers, child care providers, and others interested in early childhood education to the importance of the early years in children’s well-being and success. It summarizes the research on the value of high-quality services for young children, families, and society, showing why early education matters both today and into the future. Emphasizing the need to understand and respect young children’s strengths and unique characteristics, the authors offer inspiration for working in the field, as well as addressing the realistic challenges of implementing developmentally appropriate care and education. Each chapter begins with an introductory vignette focused on one child whose experiences are typical of other children in the same age group or life circumstances, using that child’s experiences to draw out what the best research tells us about why early care and education matters for that group of children. The book also features first-person narratives by early childhood professionals working in a range of positions who offer insight into the complexity and joys of working with or on behalf of young children. Suggestions for further reading and concluding questions for reflection, dialogue, and action make The Early Years Matter a perfect resource for courses and professional development. “Hyson and Tomlinson do not simply provide a straightforward and comprehensive view of early childhood education; they humanize it through the experiences of children, families, and early childhood professionals. They leave the reader with a clear understanding of the myriad of ways in which high-quality early childhood education programs matter in the early years, and they matter a lot.” —From the Foreword by Jacqueline Jones “This book does a remarkable job of inviting future and current practitioners further into the world of the early childhood profession. It provides clear, interesting, and succinct overviews of issues critical for those working in early childhood to understand, weaving in the most recent developments in research, policy, and practice in accessible ways. Each section of the book also literally puts a face on a selected issue, inviting readers to meet a child and family experiencing the issue, as well as colleagues focusing on it in their work. The Early Years Matter is engaging—both a pleasure to read and effective in welcoming readers to take part in work of great significance.” —Martha Zaslow, director, Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD), Office for Policy and Communications

This book is for teachers of children aged four-eight years. It shows how teachers can collaborate with parents in addressing children's educational and emotional needs. The author presents a variety of classroom management strategies, which teachers can choose from to strengthen children's social and academic competence. She believes that children's emotional literacy is as important as academic literacy. The book shows how teachers can set up individualized programmes which address the special social and emotional needs of children at particular risk with social and academic problems, because of problems such as learning difficulties, hyperactivity, impulsivity, attention deficit disorder, language and reading delays and aggressive behaviour. The author shows how teachers can integrate individualized interventions for such children in the mainstream classroom, while enhancing the social competence of all their students. Teachers understand that just as a child's cognitive competence is important for their ability to learn so too does a child's social competence and emotional security affect their ability to learn. This book will support teachers in developing social competence and emotional well- being in all children. Based on the empirically validated" Dinosaur Social Skills and Problem-solving Curriculum," this book emphasizes the management of hyperactive, inattentive and aggressive children. It includes practical scripts, games, activities, pictures and circle time role-plays and plans for use with children 4-8 years. Carolyn Webster-Stratton is an educational psychologist who for twenty years has been developing and evaluating interventions to help children with behaviour problems. She is the author of the well-known parent book: The Incredible Years: A Trouble-Shooting Guide for Parents fo Young Children (Ages 3-8 Years).

Abstract: Parents of children with developmental disabilities experience a greater level of stress than parents of typically developing children. Parental stress disrupts parental functioning, setting a vicious cycle of coercive parent-child interactions and further stress. The current study aims to break this vicious cycle by evaluating the effectiveness of the Incredible Years Basic Parent Training (IYPT) for Chinese preschoolers at risk for developmental disabilities in a community clinic setting in Hong Kong. Fifty-two parents of children with developmental delays (age 3-6 years) were randomly assigned to either a parenting program (EXP) or a waitlist-control (WLC) condition. Multi-informants and multi-measures of child and parenting behaviors were taken before and after the 12-week intervention. Medium intervention effects were found in primary-caregiver parents' self-reported parental stress index. Medium-to-large intervention effects were found in both primary-caregiver parent-report and spouse-report measures of children's oppositional behaviors. While primary-caregiver parents did not report a significant change in their parenting practices, their kins/spouses nonetheless reported improvements of a small effect size in the primary-caregiver parents' parenting practices. Blinded observations of parent-child interactions during a structured play activity indicated significant short-term effects on positive parenting and coaching. Parents had a high attendance rate and reported high satisfaction with the program. Treatment effects did not seem to correlate with demographic and other characteristics of the parents, suggesting that the treatment effect was robust across different profiles of parents. Preliminary results suggest that the Incredible Years Basic Parent Training is an effective and feasible intervention in the community settings for Chinese preschoolers at risk for developmental disabilities and their parents in Hong Kong.

This article focuses on the Incredible Years Teacher Classroom Management (IY TCM) intervention as an example of an evidence-based program that embeds fidelity and adaptation within its design. First, the core features of the IY TCM program along with the methods, processes, and principles that make the intervention effective are described. The importance of fidelity and methods for effectively measuring fidelity are discussed. In addition, support mechanisms (training, mentoring, consultation, and coaching) necessary to facilitate high fidelity of implementation of IY TCM are highlighted. The goal is to clarify the underlying principles and supports needed to effectively allow IY group leaders to disseminate the IY TCM among teachers with diverse backgrounds and skills, who work with students with varying developmental, academic, and social-emotional needs. Often fidelity and adaptation are thought of as mutually exclusive, but in the IY model they are considered both complementary and necessary. Implications for school psychologists and prevention science are discussed. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.).

The Incredible Years parent training programme is an empirically supported therapy developed by the Washington Parenting Centre, which has rapidly become the favoured parent training programme used by social service agencies and community organisations in Tauranga. It is part of a series which also comprises of a child training programme and a teacher training programme. The combination of programmes aims to reduce conduct problems in children early in their life, while the behaviour is malleable. This thesis is an evaluation of that programme by its Tauranga facilitators.
