“Nilofer Ahsan, Jill Rosenthal (Portland, Maine: National Academy for State Health Policy, May 2010). This State Health Policy Briefing puts forth a three-part framework for engaging parents in supporting healthy child development: parents engaging with: 1) their child, 2) the services and programs they receive, and 3) the larger systems and policies that govern those services. “
Susan Kannel, Michael Perry. (New York, NY: The Commonwealth Fund, March 2001). This report is based on findings from eight focus groups of mothers with young children enrolled in Medicaid in the four ABCD I states (NC, UT, VT, WA). For policymakers, the report includes recommendations about how to notify mothers about services and provide them with information. Focus group findings also suggest specific areas where state Medicaid programs can play an active role in supporting early child development. (From Preface)
