Developmental Parenting - A Guide for Early Childhood Practitioners

Now that you have explored the ABCs of Developmental Home Visitation and how to apply it to partnerships with families, the question becomes: how does a leadership team set up a developmental parenting home visitation program or shift an already established program?

Through chapters 8-11 of the Developmental Parenting book, VBC members will dive into program elements that support home visitors in their work and help maintain a parenting-focused model. This includes supervision as both a parallel process and a tool to support ongoing development, as well as examining assessments, outcomes, evaluation and ongoing program improvement.
