HIPPY Parent - Child Observation Instrument
This list describes elements of in-home teaching that parents are exposed to during their time with their home visitor. Use it to identify a baseline of understanding of techniques, and to give parents specifiic feedback on their work with their child. Parents will be introduced to the packet, get a chance to try it out, and then either choose one activity or allow child to choose from activities. It is expected that parents be observed working with their child around Packet 5 and Packet 10.
