This program makes enduring changes in the attitudes and behaviours of both children and parents. It works with families over time to give them the confidence and new skills to become their children's first and most important teacher and advocate. Using a strength-based perspective and modeling new skills and behaviors, the Parent-Child Home Program should be brought to scale across the country in high-need school districts.
