Implementing Life Skills Progression™ (LSP™)

Prepare your staff and managers to implement Life Skills Progression™ (LSP™), a field-tested tool for recording home visiting data, planning interventions, and monitoring outcomes of young children and their families! To help your organization adopt LSP successfully, an LSP expert will consult with you before your seminar. Then, during the seminar, two LSP trainers will teach participants scoring guidelines and show them how to use LSP for clinical intervention planning. For data recording and reporting purposes, the seminar will focus on achieving high inter-rater reliability.

Through role-play and case discussions, participants will

  • examine the history of home visitation data and explore the Utilization Focused Evaluation theory of “useful data”
  • learn to score and use the LSP reliably with individual parents and infants
  • practice using the LSP to document progress, plan interventions, and support reflective practices
  • discuss LSP integration issues specific to the needs of your program or system

Who will benefit from this seminar

Home visitation programs and professionals working with at-risk families of children 0-3, including public health nurses, social workers, parent educators, and mental health care providers
