Home Visiting Impacts on Child Development & School Readiness Outcomes
Randomized control trials with follow-up studies for participants found that at-risk children who participated in a high-quality, early home visiting program had better cognitive and vocabulary scores by age six (Olds, D. et al 2004) and higher third-grade scores in math and reading than the control group (Olds, D. et al. 2007).
Another voluntary home visitation program found that participants were 42.5 percent more likely to graduate from high school than their peers who did not participate (Levenstein, P. et al. 1998).
