Home-Start UK in association with NESTA are seeking an evaluation partner to evaluate the introduction of a new home based early intervention programme to accelerate language development for disadvantaged children.

The volunteer led coaching programme supports parents to increase the interaction they have with their young children and helping them to understand how important this is for their child’s development.

The programme uses Lena technology to measure interactions between the parent and child gaining insights into the home talking environment. This feedback is used to inform, support and motivate parents and track progress toward increasing parent child interactions.
