September 2010Vol. 11, No. 7ZERO TO THREE Spotlights Home Visiting

A recent edition of The Baby Monitor, an online newsletter published by the ZERO TO THREE Policy Network, focuses on resources to help States and professionals learn more about using home visiting to support families during a child's first years of life. Home visiting has gained national visibility due, in part, to new Federal funding established under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 to help States develop, implement, and expand evidence-based home visiting programs.

This edition of The Baby Monitor connects professionals with ZERO TO THREE resources such as:

  • A tool to help States assess and improve their home visitation programs
  • A policy brief on supporting parents and child development through home visiting
  • Highlights from a webinar featuring innovative approaches to building an early childhood home visitation system
  • A discussion forum for States to share their home visiting plans and ideas
  • The July 2010 edition of the Zero to Three journal: "Home Visiting: Past, Present, and Future" (paid subscription required)

The Baby Monitor also regularly features Federal and State policy updates on issues affecting infants and toddlers and their families, as well as new publications and resources from related national and State organizations.
