Stepping Stones Triple P –
Positive Parenting Programme
Early intervention strategy for families who have a child between 2 years and 12 years.
Stepping Stones Triple P aims to increase parental competence and confidence in raising children with disabilities (including autism) by:
* Increasing parents’ competence in managing common behaviour problems and developmental issues found among children with disabilities (including autism).
* Reducing parents’ use of coercive and punitive methods of disciplining children.
* Improving parents’ communication about parenting issues.
* Reducing parenting stress associated with raising children.
Primary Care Triple P Stepping Stones programme
This programme consists of a series of brief counselling sessions over the time space of about 2 months. You’ll either meet at home and sessions over the phone are also possible. You’ll meet to tackle specific behaviours or issues that are particularly worrying you. You could discuss anything from your child’s fear and anxiety to mealtime dramas or disruptive behaviour. You’ll be given a targeted Stepping Stones booklet with more information to help you manage the problem at home.

This programme consists of 8-10 home visits, including two sessions of assessment, two sessions on positive parenting skills, 3 practice sessions, two sessions on planned activities training and a closure session.
