Newly added to PPN's Programs that Work section: Parent-Child Home Program demonstrates promise in improving children's cognitive development

The Parent-Child Home Program (PCHP) is a home visitation program that supports positive parenting practices and helps parents learn how to stimulate their children's cognitive development. The Parent-Child Home Program is targeted at families that are challenged by poverty, isolation, and language, literacy, and cultural barriers, and that have children aged two at the time of program initiation. Two evaluations of PCHP that met PPN criteria found that the program improved children's scores on tests related to cognitive development. Both studies also found that the program improved parents' interactions with children.
