The PDED Model

You are welcome to explore the model below in any order you like.  But our recommendation is to start at the bottom and work your way up.

Most people will want to click first on the Problem Solving block, looking for solutions. But PDEP does not tell parents what to do. You already have the answers in you – we just help you uncover them. 

When we teach parents about PDEP, we start at the bottom of the model, with Long-term Goals.  Then we work our way up the blocks.  By the time you get to Problem Solving, you will have the understanding and tools you need to uncover your inner strengths.
