Why our model is an evidence-based home visiting model
More than a dozen outcome studies have been conducted on the effects of the Parents as Teachers model. Studies published in peer-reviewed journals show statistically significant and sustained effects. Outcome data have been collected on more than 16,000 children and parents.
Evaluations of Parents as Teachers have been supported by the state of Missouri and other states, independent 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.
