The Parent-Child Home Program in Western Manitoba: A 20-Year Evaluation
Gfellner, Barbara M.; McLaren, Lorraine; Metcalfe, Arron
Child Welfare, v87 n5 p49-67 2008
This article is a 20-year evaluation of the Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP) of Child and Family Services in Western Manitoba. Following Levenstein's (1979, 1988) approach, home visitors model parent-child interchanges using books and toys to enhance children's cognitive development through appropriate parenting behaviors. The evaluation provides a profile of PCHP families and performance outcomes. Findings show impressive gains in cognitive competence and parenting behaviors. Recommendations are given for program development and future research. (Contains 1 footnote and 4 tables.)
