Video Interaction Project
The Video Interaction Project (VIP) is an evidence-based parent education program for parents of infants and young children that takes place at pediatric offices at the time of children’s routine pediatric check-ups. At each VIP session, parents meet one-on-one with a VIP Coach for 25-30 minutes. Through the use of videotaping and developmentally-appropriate toys, books, and resources, VIP helps provide parents with tools for using pretend play, shared reading, and daily routines as opportunities for strengthening early development and literacy in their children. VIP has been developed and led by pediatricians and researchers at NYU Grossman School of Medicine.Click here to learn more about Video Interaction Project
