Receive personalized support and visits for families with children pregnancy – 36 monthsGet Started
Approved by the Illinois State Board of Education, Baby TALK supports the Home Visitor to meet the real needs of children and families. Using age appropriate activities and resources for parents, our home visitor provides individualized lesson plans tailored to families.
Every six months our home visitor and families create goals together. Every four months, the Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ) are conducted with families. Our home visitor and parents do this screening together to look at different areas of your child’s development.
Our home visitor calls one of the parents for their visit. We get started by checking in on how things have been going since the last visit.
Home visitor asks about the activities that were provided that month. For example, a shape matching game with velcro, then a small art project like coloring with crayons or paint. The home visitor models and works with the child and with the activities.
The home visitor then shares her screen so they can read books together. The books vary depending on the child’s interest. At the end of the visit, we sing a good-bye song.
The home visitor asks the family if they need any supplies, like diapers, formula, etc. If so, we connect them to resources.
