The Camrose Family Resource Centre provides regular Triple P Parenting sessions for families in the Camrose area. Triple P sessions are offered to parents of children under the age of 12, parents of teens, and for parents of children who have a developmental disability.
Triple P’s easy-to-understand and practical strategies have been shown to help families in all types of situations. To access upcoming Triple P Parenting seminars and groups, check out our current newsletter here. All other inquiries can be made to the Centre.
Parents can access Triple P in many different ways. Parents who require a little support can attend the Seminar Series of Level 2. Parents who require more support and wish to meet with a practitioner for 3 or 4 sessions, can access Level 3. And finally, parents who feel that they need more intensive support of meeting one on one with a practitioner or in a group setting, can access Level 4.

Finally we have a way for Parents to measure the many different ways their children grow!
The Camrose Family Resource Centre offers the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) and the Ages and Stages Questionnaire Social/Emotional (ASQ/SE) for parents to use to give them a ‘snapshot’ of their child’s development.
What Is the the ASQ and the ASQ/SE?
This is a simple questionnaire that parents fill out at home. It is based on the age of the child and asks specific questions to determine your child’s development.
How do I complete the ASQ and the ASQ/SE?
As you play with your child, you are asked to observe the way that your child completes certain activities. You check "yes" if your child performs the activity regularly; "sometimes" if your child does it only occasionally; "not yet" if your child does not do the activity yet.
What do I do with the completed ASQ and the ASQ/SE?
Once you complete the questionnaire, return it to the Camrose Family Resource Centre and it will be reviewed by a staff person. The staff will go over the results with you. You will receive a list of appropriate activities you may enjoy doing with your child to continue to promote development.
What happens if the ASQ and the ASQ/SE determines that my child has an area of concern?
If your child is identified as having an area of concern, the parent will be given a referral to an appropriate agency for further evaluation. This does not mean that there is something wrong with your child, but perhaps they simply need extra attention in the area of development with concerns.
What if I have other questions, not answered here?

We have many registered and drop in programs for families to attend. Registration dates will be announced several weeks before the actual date.
Families can access information resources for their children, their family or their community. Staff can support the family to complete a phone call, organize important task list or to attend a meeting to provide support. The family is in the driver seat of support.
Our services extend to all families in the counties of Camrose, Beaver and Flagstaff. We have designated staff supporting these areas on a weekly basis.
