PARENTS+ / 0-3 YEARS HOME VISITATION PROGRAM
Parents+ program includes a Family Guidance program launched with the goal of supporting parents with new ideas on issues such as play and storytelling and helping them enhance the rapidly developing brains of their children. The contents of the program were developed by experts from the departments of Psychology and Educational Sciences of the Boğaziçi University. The program was an adaptation to Turkey of the Reach Up and Learn program, which was previously implemented and results of which were measured. The home visitation program is based on providing disadvantaged families with guidance services. It includes providing families with regular guidance on a variety of topics such as nutrition, depression, child development and care within the framework of the content developed by Boğaziçi University. The family guidance program also contains home visits, workshops, seminars, and circulation of development-related messages in public spaces.
