In brief

Evidence of model effectiveness

This model does not meet the criteria established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) for an “evidence-based early childhood home visiting service delivery model” for the general population or for tribal populations because the findings from high- or moderate-rated effectiveness studies of the model do not meet all required criteria.

Model description

The Promoting First Relationships (PFR)-Home Visiting Options include two versions that are used with parents in the home: (1) PFR-Home Visiting Promotion Model and (2) PFR-Home Visiting Intervention Model. The only difference between the versions is that in the PFR-Home Visiting Intervention Model, home visitors must have a master’s degree. PFR can also be used one-on-one with parents in a health clinic and with caregivers responsible for group child care. The HomVEE review is based on the PFR-Home Visiting Options. The PFR-Home Visiting Options seek to promote children’s social-emotional development by helping parents read and understand children’s cues and the unmet needs behind challenging behaviors, and supporting parents’ use of sensitive and responsive caregiving behaviors. Both of the PFR-Home Visiting Options serve parents of children from birth through age 5 years. A trained home visitor video records the parent interacting with their child at home, and the home visitor and parent view and reflect on the recordings. In addition, the PFR-Home Visiting Options provide parents with information, including handouts, on the social and emotional needs of young children, and strategies to meet these needs. The PFR-Home Visiting Options provide weekly hour-long home visits for 10 to 14 weeks but can be extended based on a family’s needs.

For more information on the PFR-Home Visiting Options, please read the Model Overview.
