Interdisciplinary topics in Early Intervention: Enhancing child motivation and parent self-efficacy through use of the Pediatric Volitional Questionnaire (PVQ)


(This is a closed training for CFDC staff. We request that this not be posted to the general public at this time.)

Participants will learn how to use the Pediatric Volitional Quetionnaire (PVQ) to assess a child's motivation and sense of personal causation within different contexts and to help plan interventions. Participants will also learn how to instruct caregivers on how to use the PVQ to understand how to support their child's drive for exploration and mastery of their environment.
