Do Nurse Home-Visiting Programs Have Lasting Benefits for Mothers and Children? Evaluation Science Brief
National Forum on Early Childhood Program Evaluation
"Evaluation Science Briefs" summarize the findings and implications of a recent study evaluating the effects of an early childhood program or environment. This Brief evaluates the study, "Effects of Nurse Home-Visiting on Maternal and Child Functioning: Age-9 Follow-up of a Randomized Trial" (D. Olds, et al.). States are increasingly turning to nurse home-visiting programs to improve the well-being of disadvantaged children and families. Findings from this study provide additional support for the conclusion that intensive, high-quality nurse home-visiting can have beneficial effects on families and that it can improve children's achievement in vulnerable families.
