Current Research Opportunities for Students
Natural Parenting: Exploratory study of caregiving practices in early infancy.
- Parenting patterns -- do parents follow a "natural" or "marketed" approach?
- Caregiving outcomes -- do feeding, sleeping, and carrying predict development?
Low-income Families in Utah and nationally (Early Head Start): USU is one of 15 national study sites following children from infancy to 5th grade whose families were in Early Head Start.
- longitudinal development--what early indicators predict later development?
- Parenting--what parenting behaviors and attitudes predict later development?
- Father involvement--what aspects of f early father involvement predict later development?
Middle-income Families in Utah (Parent-Toddler, 1 TO 7, Up to 8th & 12th): We recently collected data from high school seniors who were studied in infancy and 2nd & 8th grades
- Attachment: does early security support better academic and psychosocial outcomes?
- Language: do early joint attention and conversation foster later academic outcomes?
Measurement of Parenting (PICCOLO): We have used over 4,000 observations of parenting interactions to develop a valid, reliable, easy-to-use measure for both researchers and practitioners.
- Affection: warmth and positive behaviors that promote child development
- Responsiveness: sensitive behaviors that promote child development
- Encouragement: supportive behaviors that promote child development
- Teaching: playful conversational behaviors that promote child development
Other research interests depend on student interest and funding opportunities.
- Home visiting strategies for working with parents of young children
- Training strategies for practitioners in the field
- Teaching strategies for students in FCHD and related fields
