Fellenz, Peter; And Others
This Home Start report centers its attention on three areas: how actual home visits are being conducted, how projects are spending grant money from a cost analysis point of view, and whether any tentative statement on program effectiveness can be made based upon an analysis of pre-post test data. The seven sections of the report are: (1) Demographies, (2) The Ideal Home Visitor and the Ideal Home Visit, (3) The Actual Home Visitor, (4) The Actual Home Visit, (5) Cost Analysis of Grant Expenditures and Levered Resources, with Addenda on Referrals, (6) Aides and Deterrents to the Meeting of First Year Local Objectives, and (7) Conclusions and Recommendations for Program Improvement. Highlighted in the report is the importance of making the Home Start parent a primary interactor during home visits. Appendices comprise half the report. (Author/CS)
