UNM Center for Development and Disability's Early Childhood Prevention and Home Visiting Services offers two evidence-based home visitation implementations, Nurse-Family Partnership and Parents as Teachers. Our implementations deliver services to primarily low-income families starting in the prenatal stage through kindergarten entry. At its core, our prevention services are designed to promote resilience in families with a trauma-informed and culturally attuned approach. In this presentation, we will explore strategies that reduce risk for adverse childhood experiences by providing support to primary caregivers and their families.
