Abstract: This article describes the Positive Parenting Project in Brown County, Wisconsin, which is specifically designed to support parents with mental retardation. PPP staff -which consists of a registered nurse and project assistant - provide services for 10-15 families. While the goal of the project is to help each child reach his or her potential, the focus is on the whole family.

The Parenting Research Centre acknowledges and respects the diverse Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of this country and the Elders of the past, present and future.
