Supporting New Parents through Home Visits: Effects on Mother-Infant Interaction.
Dawson, Peter M.; And Others
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education, v10 n4 p29-44 Win 1991
Paraprofessionals provided informal social support to 92 low-income parents during pregnancy and for a year afterward. Mother-infant interaction was better at four months in the home-visited families than in controls, especially with teen and Hispanic mothers. Positive and irritable or fearful mothers appeared to benefit more than passive or intrusive mothers. (Author/JDD)
