Through Each Other's Eyes evaluation
The Through Each Other’s Eyes (TEOE) programme was a one-year programme operating in the local authority of Haringey from March 2016 to April 2017.
The TEOE programme sought to promote infants’ social and emotional development using video interaction guidance (VIG) with families. Through VIG, parents are given increased opportunities to observe and reflect on video recordings of their positive interactions with their child.
The overall aim of the programme was to support parents to bond with their baby. This report describes the evaluation of a service development project in its implementation of a VIG programme in Haringey and makes a preliminary assessment of the programme’s feasibility and acceptability for use with families living in the borough who have infants of 12 months or younger.
Results from the preliminary outcomes and process evaluations show that VIG has benefits for parents, practitioners and managers within early years services.
