Discusses emerging research points to the importance of supportive supervision, fidelity monitoring, and organizational climate to support home visitors and maintain support for the evidence-based program.

Replicating Home Visiting Programs with Fidelity: Baseline Data and Preliminary Findings

Describes how the Evidence Based Home Visiting cross-site evaluation is examining fidelity across a range of home visiting models. Program administrators can use fidelity data to demonstrate that public investments are achieving required service delivery levels associated with positive child and family outcomes.

Effectiveness of Developmental Screening in an Urban Setting

Examines the effectiveness of developmental screening on the identification of developmental delays, early intervention (EI) referrals, and EI eligibility. Children who participated in a developmental screening program were more likely to be identified with developmental delays, referred to EI, and eligible for EI services in a timelier fashion than children who received surveillance alone. These results support policies endorsing developmental screening.
