Detailed Description:

This study is an initial efficacy trial of SSTP for parents of children below age 2. The target population consists of 50 families of young children ages 11-23 months with developmental disabilities who are eligible to receive IDEA Part C services in one region of South Carolina. Families will be randomly assigned to one of two conditions (1) IDEA Part C services as usual or (2) IDEA Part C services plus SSTP. Project goals are to strengthen parent competence, enhance parent confidence, and strengthen child social, emotional and behavioral functioning. Ultimately, this should result in a reduced likelihood of child maltreatment
