Cognitive stimulation and parental sensitivity in toddlers' homes

How do children and parents interact and how effective are trainings for parents?

The project FILU (Feinfühlige Interaktionsgestaltung und Gestaltung von Lernumgebungen) aims at providing support and training for parents in establishing cognitive stimulation and sensitive interaction with the child, and by these means providing high quality home learning environments [...]. Within the scope of the project FILU, the effects of parent trainings were investigated considering first patent's sensitive reaction towards child's attachment behaviour and cognitive stimulation. In [this chapter], the theoretical background on home learning environments, parental sensitivity and cognitive stimulation as well as the design of the project FILU will be described. The chapter ends with first results and implications for further research.
