Home Start: School for Parents. Final Report.
Segal, Marilyn M.; Simco, Edward R.
Home Start: School for Parents is a parent education program with three major components: a Prototype School for Parents, a pilot television series, and a Manual for Parents on the infancy period. The prototype school is evaluated in terms of its impact on parents and infants, the manual and the television shows in terms of audience response and expert opinion. The final report describes both the formative evaluation that led to the on-going program modifications, and the summative evaluation that attempted to measure the success of the program in terms of immediate objectives. The long term objective of the program - to provide children from all SES groups with a better home start - cannot as yet be assessed. (Author)
