Comprehensive Model for Child Services: Parent Education Follow Through Program.
Rubin, Roberta; And Others
In response to the need for a comprehensive child services program, the Parent Education Follow Through Program was developed. It combines a program of social action with emphasis on functional relationships between the home and impinging social systems. The major features of the program include the following: (1) comprehensive services (social, psychological, and medical); (2) home visitations; (3) home learning activities and corresponding parental teaching behaviors; and (4) parental committees and meetings which are organized to facilitate parental involvement. The data that have been collected to measure these program areas have shown that the model has had a positive impact upon children and their achievement as well as upon their families, school, and community.
