A Guide for Home Visitors. (Preliminary Draft).
Barbrack, Christopher; And Others
To increase the educability of preschool children from low income homes, the Demonstration and Research Center for Early Education (DARCEE) devised a home visiting program to teach the mother to be an effective teacher of her child at home. The DARCEE guide is intended as one resource to help provide information for persons in training to be home visitors and to help trainees develop skills and attitudes necessary for changing maternal patterns of interaction where necessary. Home conditions that influence learning are discussed. A general description of the DARCEE approach is given along with a detailed record of an entire series of visits to one home. The program sought to involve the mother in community life along with strengthening her skills as a teacher at home. The future of home visiting as a benefit to the home visitor, to the family and to the community is described. References and a glossary of terms are included. Appendix A lists suggested activities for home visits. Appendix B lists a sample unit. (WY)
