Our PARENT AIDE model is based on research and concepts first introduced by Dr. Ray Heifer and Dr. Henry Kempe, who were pioneers in the field in the 1960s. Their leading research on battered children's syndrome expressed the belief that most abusive parents grew up without a positive parenting role model.
The Exchange Club Parent Aide program has been replicated since 1979 in over 80 communities in more than 23 states and Puerto Rico. It is utilized in rural, urban, and suburban areas serving diverse populations in a culturally responsive manner.
