Connecting the Dots is founded on the knowledge that…

  • parents usually identify their parenting partner as their main source of parenting support
  • high quality parenting partnerships can protect families against the stresses associated with the raising of children with highly challenging behaviours and other developmental concerns
  • parenting partnership quality shares important relations with children’s social and emotional development

Connecting the Dots aims to enhance practitioner awareness of the importance of parenting partnerships while also developing and testing resources designed to weave activities that support, promote and enhance parenting partnerships into everyday practice.
