Description

This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of a Distance Mentoring Model (DMM), including performance-based feedback and technology support, on expanding the use of recommended home visiting practices by early interventionists. Data from 18 early interventionists indicated that participation in the DMM approach was associated with increased use of various caregiver coaching strategies and routine contexts. Specifically, participants spent significantly less time in child-focused intervention and more time using specific coaching interactions with the caregiver and child as a dyad after participating in technology-supported, performance-based feedback. All participants reported that they would participate in technology-supported, professional development opportunities again in the future. (author abstract)
