In response to the revised scope of work funded by SAC and awarded to Positive Parenting DuPage, Baby TALK developed a project to provide efforts and activities what will inform and advance achievement of a unified, statewide system of high quality Home Visiting to ensure sustained gains from the use of the grant to Illinois.  Since fall of 2011, Baby TALK, Inc has been involved in a “grass roots” effort to develop a document outlining model fidelity and a self-assessment process involving the participation of Baby TALK’s network of providers across the state.  A fully developed self-assessment tool, which is valid and reliable, will ensure that the information gathered during monitoring is used to support quality improvement efforts by providers in the field.
