Dads' Parenting Interactions with Children Checklist of Observations Linked to Outcomes (PICCOLO-D): Developing a Measure for Head Start Practitioners to Use with Fathers

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Anderson, Sheila; Roggman, Lori A.;
Date Issued: 2009
Description: To promote father contributions to child development outcomes, Head Start/Early Head Start programs need a valid and reliable measure of positive father-child interaction linked to child outcomes. The purpose of this project is to develop a valid, reliable measure of father-child interaction that predicts child outcomes, identifies fathers' strengths, and meets the needs of Davis/Morgan/Summit Head Start/Early Head Start Fatherhood program. The new PICCOLO-D Checklist of father interactive behaviors will complement the PICCOLO Checklist developed for mothers (Roggman et al., 2009). The Checklist will be developed based on the literature on father-child interactions and validated using archived video clips of father-child interaction observations. After the measure is developed, it will be pilot field-tested and its usefulness for Head Start practitioners and programs evaluated.
