Parsimonious Advances in Children’s Early Sociability (PACES) 

 

The PACES Project is a strengths-based behavior resiliency program that provides school-based intervention services for preschool children with significant social and emotional needs. We evaluate the implementation of evidence-based treatments for young children with behaviors recognized as challenging and train teachers to support children’s generalization of skills to the classroom and other school settings. Our pilot study was supported by an internal seed grant and our project is currently under review for external funding. 

 

Focus Group Study

 

The purpose of this study is to identify the needs & priorities of early childhood teachers and staff who support young children with behaviors recognized as challenging in order to guide professional development activities focused on the Pyramid Model. We hope that data gathered will better inform professional development goals, activities, and outcomes. Our focus group study has not been submitted for funding. 

 

Survey Study 

 

The purpose of this study is to examine families’ and teachers’ perceptions of children’s social and emotional adjustment and the social and emotional practices implemented across home and school contexts. Data gathered will inform social and emotional intervention supports for children in school and home settings. Our survey study is currently under review for internal and external funding.
