Parent to Parent Support in Early Intervention

Researcher: Robin Dodds, Ph.D
Institution: Charter College of Education

In this study we hope to learn about the impacts of Parent to Parent support in Early Intervention on families and children.

If you agree to participate in the study, you will respond to an online questionnaire on demographic data which will take 5 to 10 minutes of your time to complete. Dr. Dodds will then contact you to schedule an interview by telephone or Zoom which will take an additional 30 to 60 minutes and will focus on your experience of Parent to Parent support. The interview will be audio recorded.

To Participate You Must:
• Be 18+ years old
• Be the parent of a child under 4 years of age who has a disability and/or special healthcare needs
• Have received support from a one-to-one Parent to Parent match
• Have had at least 4 contacts with your support parent during the first 2 months of the match

Supporting Preemie Parents in Difficult Times

As we work together through these challenging times, you may have questions about how Graham’s Foundation is supporting our preemie parent community. Fortunately, because our support programs have always been delivered virtually, we are equipped to deliver all of our programs today, tomorrow, and into the future to continue to meet the psychosocial needs of parents.

Our Care Packages offer helpful tips for self-care and navigating the NICU and going home (our supplies have been in stock since before the COVID-19 outbreak), our MyPreemie app provides critical preemie-related information and helps parents journal their NICU experience, and our three dozen trained mentors are available to lend an ear and offer words of advice and encouragement.

In such a difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are here for the most vulnerable members of our community and Graham’s Foundation is ready. We are grateful to our volunteers and the individuals and industry partners who make generous donations that enable us to develop and deliver our support programs.

In Gratitude,

Nicholas Hall, Founder
