Pre-Post with Longitudinal Follow-Up assesses whether the gains made at posttest have been maintained by either administering a third AAPI at test for differences from posttest to longitudinal testing usually anywhere from 6 months to 2 years after the last class ended.
The key to this model is to determine if families have been re-charged with Child Abuse or Neglect since they ended their program. The goal of Nurturing Parenting Program is to stop the re-abuse of children in families who completed the Nurturing Parenting Program.
