[00:00:06.270]This study is super exciting,
[00:00:07.456]'cause we're taking a family school partnership intervention
[00:00:10.230]that we've been working on for years
[00:00:11.850]and doing a lot of really great research on,
[00:00:13.830]and really expanding it to be able to reach more families,
[00:00:17.672]children, and teachers.
[00:00:19.440]What this particular study is looking at
[00:00:21.450]is being able to take this intervention,
[00:00:23.400]Teachers and Parents as Partners, or TAPP for short,
[00:00:25.890]and delivering it via distance technology like Zoom.
[00:00:29.130]So we're calling it teleTAPP.
[00:00:30.960]We're going to roll it out,
[00:00:32.280]where we'll have the person who delivers the intervention
[00:00:34.409]here on campus here in Nebraska,
[00:00:36.735]but they'll be working with folks, students,
[00:00:38.910]and parents and teachers in rural Appalachia.
[00:00:41.385]In particular, we're gonna be working with students
[00:00:43.590]who have some pretty serious challenging behaviors
[00:00:46.159]that are interfering with their learning.
[00:00:48.185]And by providing greater access
[00:00:50.159]to their teachers and parents,
[00:00:51.909]we'll be able to really target the kinds of things
[00:00:54.406]that are getting in the way of students' success,
[00:00:57.009]and turn that around and help them achieve goals
[00:01:00.090]that otherwise would be quite daunting.
[00:01:02.122]We'll be working in rural Appalachia,
[00:01:03.649]where we know schools are sometimes lacking
[00:01:07.185]in terms of access to specialized supports.
[00:01:10.440]And frankly, in a lot of rural areas,
[00:01:11.609]it's very difficult for families and schools to connect
[00:01:14.409]for parents and teachers to come together.
[00:01:17.190]These are the kinds of things that we can provide
[00:01:19.740]through the TAPP intervention
[00:01:20.835]that will make a significant difference
[00:01:22.935]in these children's lives.
[00:01:24.922]We're looking to work with about 190 students,
[00:01:28.680]along with their parents and teachers
[00:01:30.035]over the course of about four years.
[00:01:32.760]So we're wanting to see how students are performing
[00:01:34.872]and how parents and teachers
[00:01:36.172]are reacting to the intervention
[00:01:38.185]by gathering lots of different types of information,
[00:01:40.899]so we can get a really nice picture of how things are going
[00:01:44.550]and how well the intervention is looking.
[00:01:46.800]Understanding the unique contextual factors
[00:01:49.559]of not only working within a new region
[00:01:52.347]like rural Appalachia,
[00:01:54.270]but also the mechanism of service delivery
[00:01:56.970]that we'll be utilizing
[00:01:58.049]will provide a whole host of new opportunities for us
[00:02:01.922]in terms of the possibilities
[00:02:04.099]that we will ultimately see with this intervention.
