Prevent-Teach-Reinforce for Families (PTR-F) was developed to address a critical need for an effective and practical approach that can be used to help families develop, implement, and maintain feasible and effective strategies to improve the behavior of young children in the home and community, as well as improve the functioning and wellbeing of the entire family system. The PTR-F process consists of teaming, family-centered planning and goal setting, practical data collection, functional behavioral assessment, intervention planning and support and coaching during implementation. All steps are designed for use by typical early childhood providers. The presenters will provide participants with an overview of the key components of this model and examples of its implementation in home and community settings.
