Adoption Glossary - H

Home Study - A study of the home of prospective adoptive parents, normally completed prior to placement of a child in their home. It validates suitability to adopt for the courts. (A negative home study evaluation, while rare, usually means the adoption will not be authorized.)
Home Visitation Programs - Prevention programs that offer a variety of family focused services to pregnant mothers and families with new babies. Activities frequently encompass structured visits to the family's home and may address positive parenting practices, nonviolent discipline techniques, child development, maternal and child health, available services and advocacy.
