Palin Parent Child Interaction therapy is an early intervention approach that was designed for stuttering and has been adapted for use with children with other speech and language needs. The transferable skills taught in this course include engaging parents in the assessment and therapy process; communicating complex and/or sensitive information to parents; using video feedback to develop parents’ confidence and skills; and addressing wider child management issues with parents, e.g. emotional, behavioral issues. These skills are applicable with a wide range of clinical contexts and caseloads.
