Baby TALK presents at the Ed Zigler Midwest Research Institute

The Baby TALK approach: An innovative early intervention model to support high-risk families in Early Head Start programs


This presentation described the Baby TALK, Inc. early intervention model and research findings suggesting the model is able to identify, recruit, and retain high-risk families in greatest need of services. The Baby TALK model is currently used in Early Head Start programs, providing support to both child and parent using an innovative approach to building strong relationships with participants. We will share successful engagement and retention strategies that can be adapted to other Head Start and Early Head Start programs without being cost prohibitive.
