Most home visiting model programs and funders recommend universal screening for child development, child’s social-emotional growth, caregiver depression, intimate partner violence, chemical and tobacco use, home safety, and other items. Screenings provide essential data to support funding, program content development, and professional development for those who provide home visiting services. Screening reinforces parent and child strengths and supports the home visitor in strategizing interventions. (New June 2022) MOD450
