Strengthening home-visiting intervention policy: Expanding reach, building knowledge

Resource Type: Other
Author(s): Daro, Deborah; Dodge, Kenneth A.;
Date Issued: September, 2010
Publisher(s): Brookings Institution. Center on Children and Families; National Institute for Early Education Research (U.S.)
Description: Many argue that the expansion of home visitation should be built solely around programs that have been proven through carefully structured clinical trials that engage a well-specified target population. We believe this approach is valuable but insufficient to achieve the type of population-level change that such reforms generally promise. We propose a home-visitation policy framework that embeds high-quality targeted interventions within a universal system of support that begins with an assessment of all new parents. This assessment process would carry the triadic mission of assessing parental capacity, linking families with services commensurate with their needs, and learning to do better. (author abstract)
