Spotlight on Early Start, Christchurch NZ

Early Start is a Christchurch based home visitation service that offers long term social, health, and educational supports to families facing serious disadvantage.

Early Start TeamAs part of the development of the programme, Early  Start has recently completed an outcome evaluation of delivering the Incredible Years® Toddler (IYT) Program to families facing parenting problems that place them at high risk of child abuse and neglect. The evaluation was based on the experiences of 75 parents who attend one of 6 IYT courses provided by Early Start.
Key findings include:
  • Levels of programme participation were acceptable with two thirds of parents completing the course.
  • Pre/ Post  comparisons showed that those attending IYT gained in parenting skills including a reduction in punitive parenting and increases in positive parenting.
  • Parents who attended courses were highly positive about the programme.
  • Maori parents were strongly supportive of the programme.
We're excited to see Early Start's continued work with Incredible Years® programs! Read the full report from Early Start on our Implementation Examples webpage, or the featured blog post from Early Start's John Horwood.

Taking Evidence-Based Programs Global

The Incredible Years® programs have spread to more than 17 countries worldwide, making research on its effectiveness in non-US settings important.

Dr. Frances Gardener's meta-analysis on evidence-based programs in areas outside of their origin shows positive insights, including comparable effects in other western countries, and even stronger effects in locations of different culture.

Read the full article, "Transporting Evidence-Based Parenting Programs for Child Problem Behavior (Age 3-10) Between Countries: Systemic Review and Meta-Analysis"
