PARENTS AS TEACHERS:

AN EVIDENCE-BASED HOME VISITING MODEL

More than a dozen outcome studies have been conducted on the effects of the Parents as Teachers model. Evaluations have been supported by various states, school districts, private foundations, universities and research organizations. With each new evaluation, we continue to learn about the children and families served by Parents as Teachers and the long-term impacts on communities.

Evaluation results show:

  • Children’s developmental delays and health problems are detected early
  • Children enter kindergarten ready to learn and the achievement gap is narrowed
  • Children achieve school success into the elementary grades
  • Parents improve their parenting knowledge and skills
  • Parents are more involved in their children’s schooling
  • Families are more likely to promote children’s language and literacy
