Featured Project - Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P

Free parenting program available for parents of children aged 2 to 9 years who have been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P

Researchers at The Parenting and Family Support Centre are currently offering a free parenting program to parents of children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The new Triple P program is called “Primary Care Stepping Stones Triple P”. It is the latest version of the popular Stepping Stones Triple P program which has been designed specifically for parents of children with a disability.

This new program was developed as a shorter version of the Stepping Stones Triple P program. Parents are given four sessions of about 30 minutes each with a trained practitioner to target one or two specific problems they are currently experiencing with their child.

Researchers, Cassie Tellegen, Professor Matt Sanders and Dr Kate Sofronoff, believe it is important that a range of different programs are available for parents who may require some additional assistance in their parenting role. As Cassie Tellegen comments, ‘having shorter, less intensive parenting programs on offer may be particularly useful for parents of children with ASD who are often already busy accessing a range of different services’.

If you are a parent of a child aged 2 to 9 years who has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder and would like to find out more information, please contact the Project Coordinator, Cassie Tellegen, or visit the website:
