Families are compensated up to $600 for their time and travel.
Not all of the families who sign up will receive ADAPT training. As the control group, they will be offered traditional parenting resources and still will be monitored by researchers.
Families interested cannot have a mom or dad who is now deployed; the parent must have returned from a deployment within the last 10 years. Single parents are welcome.
The children must be between the ages of 5 and 12 years old, and it’s OK if the deployment occurred before the children were born.
Katie said she’s glad her family signed up for the program this year.
“I feel like me, personally, I have benefited. My family has benefited,” she said. “And we wanted to be able to give back to the military.”
