USU CPD Develops Observational Tool

Press Release

September 4, 2013

Logan – A new observational tool, developed by researchers at Utah State University’s Center for Persons with Disabilities, has been published by Brookes Publishing and will be available in mid-October.

Parenting Interactions with Children: Checklist of Observations Linked to Outcomes (PICCOLO) provides home visiting, parent education and early childhood programs with valuable information for strengthening parenting practices. It was designed to assess and monitor the quality of parent-child interactions. Lori Roggman, Gina Cook, Mark Innocenti, Vonda Jump, Katie Christiansen and Sheila Anderson developed the tool.

Developed for use with parents of children 10-47 months, PICCOLO measures 29 developmentally supportive parenting behaviors proven to promote school readiness in four domains: affection, responsiveness, encouragement and teaching. The tool was developed after extensive research with more than 2,000 diverse families. Results from PICCOLO are expected to help programs provide positive feedback to parents, plan individualized family interventions and measure program effectiveness.

A detailed PICCOLO user’s guide with administration instructions and frequently asked questions and a training DVD with clips of parent-child interactions for scoring practice are available to support effective use.
