Nebraska Children’s Rooted in Relationships team recently released their annual statewide evaluation and provided data to communities participating in the initiative.
During 2019, 40 coaches supported 253 home-and center-based early childhood professionals across the state to implement the Pyramid model designed to support children’s social-emotional development, impacting approximately 2,650 children. Munroe-Meyer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center compiled this report.
The Rooted initiative also asks community leaders to invite system partners, who are serving families of young children, to discuss the best way to increase the social and emotional development of young children in their local area.
Each community identified their own unique approach and strategies. Some communities found great outcomes when they decided to implement Positive Solutions for Families, which empowers parents to implement Pyramid practices at home. Parents felt more confident in addressing their child’s behavior and in being able to meet their child’s social-emotional needs after completing the sessions.
