The Cottage service for highly disadvantaged children in Fitzroy: a review

by Boese, Martina | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Stanley, Janet | Baker, Carole | Hughes, Jody.

Publisher: Fitzroy Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2008Description: viii, 61 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography: p. 59-61Summary: An evaluation of the Cottage Centre for Families and Children which served inner-Melbourne families with young children shows that it was an effective model for assisting families with complex needs. Defining principles included early intervention, considering the child in the context of family and community; and treating parents as expert partners in the nurture of their children. Children benefited in all areas of development, while parents showed improved self-esteem, trust and skills in accessing services. This in turn improved relationships between parents and children and decreased families social isolation both essential for wellbeing and eventual independence.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1), BSL Archives (1).

The Home Instruction Program for Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) : Outcomes as assessed by `Who Am I?'

by Gilley, Tim.

Publisher: 2001Description: 12 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 12) Conference: Australasian Human Development Conference Brisbane, 2 - 4th of July, 2001, University of Queensland. Summary: This paper reports on the use of Who am I? as a research tool in evaluating an early childhood education program: the Home Instruction Program for Preschool youngsters (HIPPY). HIPPY is a two-year intervention targeted at families with low levels of education. It works directly with parents who deliver an education program for their child during the fourth and fifth years. In this research Who Am I?, a measure of developmental level based on a series of copying and writing tasks, was administered to 34 children enrolled in the HIPPY program (Intervention Group) and a matched Comparison Group of 34 children. The assessment was administered to children in their second year of the HIPPY program when children were in their first year of compulsory schooling. Findings from the study indicate that Who Am I? distinguishes between children in the Intervention and Comparisons Groups, with significantly higher scores for children in the Intervention Group. The case that it is picking up real differences in ability is strengthened by statistically significant scoring differences between the two groups for the Literacy Baseline Test and the ACER Teacher Assessment of Progress in Reading. Testing of the children in their second year of schooling (currently underway) will indicate whether differences between the two groups are sustained. These results are encouraging for the continued use of Who am I? as one of the outcome measures of the program’s impact in the second year of the program. It has the advantage of being easy and quick to administer, and appears to be understandable to children whose home language is not English. The ongoing use of Who am I? as a research tool in evaluating HIPPY, both at the point of entry to the program (at age four) as well as one year later, in their first year of compulsory schooling, is currently being examined.

The home learning environment and readiness for school : a 12-month evaluation of the Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY) in Victoria and Tasmania /

by Liddell, Max | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Barnett, Tony | Hughes, Jody | Roost, Fatoumata Diallo.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2009Description: viii, 78 p.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Report to the Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development December 2009Summary: This report details the findings of an evaluation of the Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY). Operating in several countries, the program targets children from disadvantaged communities and aims to improve their school readiness in a program which takes in preschool children and assists them over a two-year period concluding with the end of their first year at school. The program uses structured materials that tutors introduce to parents whom they visit fortnightly at home. Parent group meetings with tutors are held every alternate fortnight, also for the purpose of familiarisation in the use of the materials. Parents then work through the materials with their children. While the primary aim of HIPPY is to improve the school readiness of the children, there are additional aims: improving the parenting skills of parents and the parent?child relationship, and providing additional skills to the tutors, many of whom are people who are, or have previously been, parents who have been tutored in the program themselves.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
