Description - The Art and Practice of Home Visiting by Ruth E. Cook

Developed especially for today's working environment, this is the modern home visitor's complete introductory text to early intervention for children with disabilities and their families. Building on their extensive academic backgrounds and practical experience in the field of early intervention, the authors address the complex issues home visitors face in their daily work with families who have diverse backgrounds and needs. Together, they give readers a fresh approach to home visiting that's culturally sensitive, family centered and designed to help each unique family reach their specific goals. Home visitors will learn the skills and attitudes they'll need to: help parents enjoy a lead role in guiding their child's development; adjust their approach for a wide range of families, including teen parents, grandparents, and parents with disabilities; work successfully with interpreters and translators; and, communicate in a warm, accepting, respectful, and empathetic way.
