CHTOP regards parents as the child’s primary teachers and there has always been a strong emphasis on developing effective parenting strategies. CHTOP’s involvement with Head Start and Early Head Start emphasizes the critical role of parents and parenting in child development. Parenting is a main component in our Family Resource Centers as well. For parents and parenting caring for children with disabilities, the ARCH program provides a system for acquiring respite care, and our FRIENDS program strengthens state systems to prevent child abuse and neglect through local, community-based programs. Our focus on children with disabilities remains a primary object through all CHTOP programs but especially through the KidSCope program that provides therapy, parenting and child development services and training for families with children with special needs.
