Since the development of TOPSE we regularly receive enquiries from academic researchers and practitioners wishing to use the tool to evaluate their parenting interventions.

We are always happy to provide TOPSE on the proviso that no changes are made to either the style or content of the tool. We ask that all logos and references to the University of Hertfordshire are retained. We request that full acknowledgment is given in any published findings.

We are unable to provide printed quantities of TOPSE booklets but we make no charge for providing the pdf, which enables you to print your own copies. Coding instructions for scoring are also available.
