New Research Strengthens Home Visiting Field: The Pew Home Visiting Campaign
Doggett, Libby
Zero to Three (J), v33 n3 p5-9 Jan 2013
Extensive research has shown that home visiting parental education programs improve child and family outcomes, and they save money for states and taxpayers. Now, the next generation of research is deepening understanding of those program elements that are essential to success, ways to improve existing models, and factors to consider in tailoring home visiting to local contexts and particular target populations. All new parents need good information about their child's development to help them through the stress and uncertainty that come with having a baby. Years of research have shown that this vital support can be provided, in part, by formal parent-education programs called "home visiting."
