Maria Ferrer Ribot

Abstract

This study analyses the exploratory results of the application of an observation instrument that identifies the main actions and interventions by professionals who work in parental support programmes in early childhood education. The instrument in checklist format presents a total of 54 items, which has been applied to professionals in a parental support programme with vulnerable families. The applied instrument can be used for self-evaluation, for external evaluation or to provide training to novice professionals.
