“As users of the PICCOLO for the past seven years, we have come to rely on its effectiveness in offering our parents a way to view and evaluate their parenting techniques.”

“Weaves together a structure for grounded observations that suggest concrete ways to support positive parenting behaviors that are the foundation of who the child becomes. The PICCOLO captures the sweet sounds that are the essence of parenting."

“A tool that is useful not only for observation, but also a wonderful way to engage parents that encourages their confidence and competence as parents.”
Review by: Jennifer Cahill, and Parents/Family Support Specialists of MHCC Early Head Start Home Based Program
“The use of the PICCOLO has been an exciting step in our Early Head Start Home Based Program . . . Parents report that they have become more engaged with their children and have learned the importance of affection, teaching, responsiveness, and encouragement and the impact that positive interactions have on a child's development.”
