Parenting Skills In-Home Visit builds the skills of family-support providers to coach parents of children ages 2-5. Providers help a parent learn reading techniques to use with their toddler while building the parent's confidence and motivation to use them independently.

This simulation can be used as a stand-alone learning experience; or, in a larger curriculum, it can serve as practice and/or a focal point for discussion.

Learning objectives:

  • Techniques for coaching parenting skills including modeling, debriefing, goal collaboration, and setting a time for follow up
  • Building trusting relationships with client families

Research shows that with experiential practice, increased emotional engagement and reflective thinking leads to stronger self-efficacy and behavior change.

This simulation was developed in a close collaboration between Kognito's simulation scientists and parent-support providers from non-profit organizations around the U.S with generous support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Users receive customized feedback based on their in-simulation choices.

The simulation is available online 24/7. Users are asked to complete pre-, post-, and 3-month follow up surveys to assess changes in skills. Attitudes, and behavior. Upon completion, users receive a certificate of completion.  Clients have access to usage reports and evaluation data via the Kognito client portal.
