ResearchGate – Maurice Feldman

Prof. Feldman is a scientist-practitioner with expertise in behaviour disorders, autism, developmental disabilities, child maltreatment, and parenting. He has published extensively in peer-review journals and books, and has given numerous addresses and workshops. He held the Brock University Chancellor’s Chair in Research Excellence and is a Brock Distinguished Researcher. He received a Career Award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the National Distinguished Disability Researcher Award in the United States.

He is a leading expert in parenting by persons with learning difficulties, having designed and scientifically validated the evidence-based Step-by-Step Parenting Program© emulated worldwide. Two Step-by-Step manuals are available free of charge (contact Prof. Feldman at mfeldman@brocku.ca). The Step-by-Step manual is for teaching child-care and interaction skills to parents with newborns, infants, toddlers and preschoolers. The 230 page manual consists of task analysis checklists and picture books illustrating step-by-step parenting skills. The Family Game© is the second manual. It is for teaching parents of children from 2 to 10 years old how to promote positive parent-child relationships and prosocial child behaviour. The third Step-by-Step publication, Comprehensive competence-based parenting capacity assessment for parents with learning difficulties, is available from NADD Press (www.thenadd.org) and provides an alternative, more balanced and fair parenting assessment approach for parents with learning difficulties than current typical practices.

In addition to his ongoing work in parents with learning difficulties, Prof. Feldman is leading an international team investigating early screening of and intervention for infants at risk for autism. Prof. Feldman and Dr. Rebecca Ward designed and evaluated the Parent Observation of Early Markers Scale (POEMS). Using the POEMS parents have been able to detect, as early as nine months of age, which at-risk infants would be eventually diagnosed with autism. The POEMS is available in English and Chinese to researchers who would like to replicate and extend the POEMS findings.
