PRC is changing its training focus and introducing an implementation and support model which will enable us to better help agencies sustain their learning and improve parent and child outcomes from programs. Research shows that approaching training within an implementation model is more effective in the long term.

If your agency is in Victoria and may be interested in partnering with the PRC to receive Signposts training and up to two years implementation support, please contact the PRC at signposts@parentingrc.org.au or on 8660 3500.

If you are outside Victoria, please contact us on signposts@parentingrc.org.au to discuss your options for training and implementation within your agency. We will be happy to discuss you needs and provide a quote.

With the recent addition of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) materials to the Signposts website, practitioners now have access to the full suite of supplementary resources to use with families.

The five supplementary topics include facilitator notes, parent notes, and additional activities and resources to assist families get the most out of the Signposts Program. The five topics available are Toilet Learning, Acquired Brain Injury, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities.

Trained Signposts practitioners can download the materials right now from the facilitator login area of the site. Contact the Signposts Team if you are a trained practitioner that needs a login reminder.

Signposts is now available to families in Singapore, following a partnership agreement between the Parenting Research Centre (PRC) and KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Singapore.

This exciting collaboration brings together two organisations with a shared commitment to delivering high-quality, evidence-based programs to support parents of children who have developmental delays or disabilities.

The formal partnership with KK Hospital is the first of its kind for the PRC and came about following a presentation on Signposts by PRC staff at the International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual Disability (IASSID) 2nd Asia Pacific Conference in June 2009.

KK Hospital is a Lead Provider for Signposts and collaborates closely with the PRC on delivery of the program and research initiatives.

It is expected that Signposts will support more than 1500 families in Singapore every year.
