  • Beneficial in that we can promote, with confidence, that this area of the program objectives is attainable

Stories from the Field Shared Journeys

  • AAPI-2

Shared Journeys Student Population

  • 38 students. One full time staff member and two part-time staff members.
  • 30 mothers and 8 fathers
  • We frequently see a pattern in our students:
  • Abuse in all forms
  • Neglect in all forms
  • Divorce
  • Poverty
  • Drug Abuse of a parent, relative in the home or caregiver
  • Homelessness
  • Incarcerated Parent
  • Household Dysfunction and Chaos

Positives at Shared Journeys

  • On the flip side:
  • While at Shared Journeys we have little or no behavior issues
  • Students have excellent attendance
  • Students are connected to the school family and rely on the support
  • Students are accountable, graduate and many go onto post-secondary training.

Initial AAPI-2 assessment the first week of October 2014

  • Our results showed two significant areas of concern: normal developmental milestones for children as well as the roles of parents and children. However, all areas needed improvement.
  • *By May 2015, students who attended Shared Journeys for a full academic year, post instruction assessments using the AAPI-2, will indicate that 85% of the students will have no scores in the high risk categories as it relates to any of the five parenting constructs of the AAPI-2.

Ace Survey

  • We also administered the ACE Survey
      • Confidential
      • Assesses childhood maltreatment and family dysfunction
      • Assesses the total amount of stress during childhood


  • The higher the ACE score, the higher the risk for a myriad of health and behavior issues such as: alcohol abuse/alcoholism, depression, illicit drug use, risk for intimate partner violence, STD’s smoking, suicide attempts, adolescent pregnancy, liver and heart disease, obesity, difficulty controlling anger/rage, sleep problems and impaired memory, inability to parent, delinquency, violence, self injury etc.
  • *81% of our students have scores of 6/10!


  • Met with each student after taking initial AAPI-2. Gave no opinion just listened as they explained their answers. Found vocabulary deficiencies. ie: “nurture” Began using the vocabulary in my daily teaching.
  • Implemented developmental milestone lessons not only in child development, but across the board and made sure that I was emphasizing these points as I was teaching.
  • Created case studies and had the students work in small groups or along side our community nursing teams to determine what is going well in a child and parent’s life and what can be done to improve
  • Read articles on milestones and healthy parent child relationships.


  • 5. Visited places to observe normal child development: top rated child care centers, West Allis Family Resource Center and volunteer at a childcare center for a field trip.
  • 6. Students created an argumentative essays “ To Spank or Not to Spank” developing claim, research and evidence.
  • 7. Google journals in which students write daily and I respond.
  • 8 Students can text or call anytime for support or with questions.
  • 9 Each student was assigned a mentor.
