Parents as Teachers is proud to announce the release of its new Equity Research Brief that highlights the positive effect Parents as Teachers’ evidence-based prevention and early intervention home visiting model has on Black families with young children.
A key characteristic of the Parents as Teachers approach is that it is designed to meet the needs of individual families and, as a result, can address specific maternal, family and child outcomes in culturally responsive ways.
This new Equity Research Brief was developed to address four questions:
- What is Parents as Teachers’ approach to cultural considerations, specifically with Black families?
- How does research validate Parents as Teachers’ work with Black families?
- What experiences have families shared?
- What future steps must Parents as Teachers take to ensure that Black families are served in a respectful, meaningful, and authentic way?
Parents as Teachers has made a strong commitment to honor human diversity as a central part of our mission. It is the policy of Parents as Teachers to work and provide services in a culturally competent manner. We encourage you to read the full brief on our cultural relevancy work around Black families that illustrates how we are supporting communities of color.
