Home-Based Educational Curricula for Mothers and Infants.
Apfel, Nancy; Brion, LaRue
This package contains five home-based intervention curricula for families with children between 12 and 30 months of age. Three independent curricula (each emphasizing children's language, play or social development) enlist the mother's aid as observer, teacher and researcher, and promote a three-way interaction among mother, child, and home-visitor. The Mother Only curriculum combines the three independent curricula into a single program in which the primary interaction is between the mother and home-visitor, to the exclusion of the child (who should benefit from the education the mother receives). Likewise, the Baby Only curriculum is in combination form, but with the mother excluded from the intervention program. Each curriculum contains materials for a program of 32 visits by a trained home visitor over an 18-month period. The goals, home-visitor role, patterns of visits, and problems encountered in testing the language, play, and social development curricula are briefly discussed. (ED)
