Study Description

Brief summary:

Public health disasters have disproportionate impacts on low income communities, through pathways that add to those of poverty and associated stressors, and act over extended periods. Very young children are highly vulnerable to long-term impacts on development and mental health in the context of parenting challenges following disasters, yet frequently receive the least attention and resources. This study will test the role of universal parenting support in enhancing young children's development and mental health in Flint, Michigan following the Flint Water Crisis.

  • Condition or Disease:Family Research
    Healthy
  • Intervention/Treatment: Behavioral: Video Interaction Project
  • Phase: N/A
Detailed Description

There are three specific aims of this study: Specific Aim 1: Characterize participants' experience of the FWC using ecological (neighborhood-level), geocoded STYH data, ecological indicators of water quality and parent self-report measures. These metrics will be obtained from Speak to Your Health (STYH) survey, a biennial community survey including neighborhood-level measures of stress collected before, during and after the FWC. Specific Aim 2: Assess impacts of strengths-based parenting support (VIP) after a disaster compounding chronic poverty (FWC). Specific Aim 3: Assess variation in VIP impacts in relation to FWC experience.

Arms and interventions
Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Video Interaction Project
VIP is a strengths-based, family-centered intervention that uses pediatric well-child visits to enhance parenting practices/relationships and child development by promoting positive parenting practices such as pretend play, shared reading, and daily routines.
Behavioral: Video Interaction Project
VIP is a strengths-based, family-centered intervention that uses pediatric well-child visits to enhance parenting practices/relationships and child development by promoting positive parenting practices such as pretend play, shared reading, and daily routines.
Outcome Measures
  • Primary Outcome Measures: 1. Parenting compensatory factors (Assets/vulnerabilities): Parenting Stress [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 years ]
    Parenting stress measured by Parent Survey (PS) with the Parenting Stress Index (PSI; α= .82) short form parental distress subscale, range 12-60, higher scores worse.
  • 2. Positive Parenting Activities [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 Years ]
    Positive parenting practices measured by parent survey (PS) with the StimQ2's core subscales: Reading (READ), Teaching (Parental Involvement in Developmental Advance), and Responsivity (Parental Verbal Responsivity) Subscales. The StimQ2 is a structured interview. The three subscales are summed to obtain a total score. Total scores can range from 0 to 42 (infant)/46 (toddler)/60 (preschool). Higher score better.
  • 3. Parent-child Interaction and relationship [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 Years ]
    Laboratory observation of semi-structured interactions with real time Parenting Interactions with Children: Checklist of Observations Linked to Outcome (PICCOLO), and Adult-Child Interactive Reading Inventory (ACIRI) coding.
  • 4. Child Expressive and Receptive Language Development [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 Years ]
    Measured through direct assessment of child using the Mullen Scales of Early Learning. The Mullen provides standardized scores (M=50, SD=10). Higher scores better.
  • 5. Child Social-Emotional Development [ Time Frame: 18 months to 4 years ]
    Measured by parent survey (PS) using the Infant-Toddler Social Emotional Assessment (ITSEA). ITSEA is a structured interview that measures 4 domains. Items have a 3-point response scale. Subscales are scored by taking the average of items, and subscales are then added to create an overall score. Scores are standardized on a T-distribution (M=50, SD=10). Higher scores worse, except for Competence domain.
  • Secondary Outcome Measures: 1. Parent Self-Efficacy Measured by the Parent Reading Beliefs Inventory (PRBI) [ Time Frame: birth to 4 years ]
    Self-efficacy measured by parent survey (PS) using the Parent Reading Beliefs Inventory (PRBI), Teaching Efficacy subscale (α=.73). PRBI is a structured interview. Items are rated on a 1 to 4 Likert scale. Scores for Teaching Efficacy range from 9 to 36. Higher scores are better.
  • 2. Parent Self-Efficacy Measured by the Parenting Self Agency Measure (PSAM) [ Time Frame: birth to 4 years ]
    Parenting self-agency measured by PS using the Parenting Self-Agency Measure (PSAM). PSAM is a 5-item questionnaire, with items rated from 1 to 5. Scores range from 5 to 25. Higher scores are better
  • 3. Parent Self-Efficacy Measured by Resiliency (RSA) [ Time Frame: birth to 4 years ]
    Resiliency measured using the Resiliency Scale for Adults (RSA), Personal Strength and Social Resources subscales. RSA items are scored on a 1 to 5 Likert scale. Subscale scores are averaged across items. Higher scores are better.
  • 4. Parenting compensatory factors: Planning and Organization [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 years ]
    Feeding, sleeping, media routines and screen time measured by parent survey (PS) using an internal survey (PI Mendelsohn; kappa 0.91).
  • 5. Parenting compensatory factors: Parenting Interaction Skills and Resources [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 years ]
    Play coded video for VIP-promoted skills measured using VIP observation checklist
  • 6. Parent-child interactions and relationship [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 years ]
    Laboratory observation of semi-structured interactions with subsequent global coding using the Caregiver-Child Affect, Responsivity, and Engagement Scale (C-CARES) and the Parent Child early Relational Assessment (PCERA)
  • 7. Naturalistic assessment of parent-child interaction [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 years ]
    LENA Home (adult words, conversational turns)
  • 8. Negative Parenting Practices [ Time Frame: 6 months to 4 years ]
    Socolar Discipline Survey (α= .56-.82) will be used to assess harsh discipline punishment. Answers range from 1 (never) to 6 (always), where a higher score indicates great frequency of harsh discipline. A total score is calculated from the sum of all items.
  • 9. Child naturalistic language/narrative development [ Time Frame: 18 months to 4 years ]
    Laboratory observation of naturalistic assessment of child language/narrative
  • 10. Child self-regulation [ Time Frame: 18 months to 4 years ]
    Direct observation using subset of executive function (EF) battery for 3-year olds from S.M. Carlson - Dimensional Card Sort (3 incompatible test trials, scored 0/1), Fruit Stroop (mismatched fruit; 3 trials, scored 0-2), and Bear/Dragon: Go/No Go (10 trials, scored 0/1). Laboratory observation of child regulation during assessment using the Preschool Self-Regulation Assessment (PSRA).

The investigators will work together with the Michigan State University Pediatric Public Health Initiative and its community partners to develop a plan for data sharing that addresses these diverse and important considerations.
  • Supporting Materials: Study Protocol
  • Time Frame: Data will become available after all primary outcomes have been assessed by study investigators. Time frame for availability of data will depend of other researchers' specific requests and community partners needs.
