Mothers and Babies Training and Implementation Resources. The Mothers and Babies (MB) team will maintain online resources for training and implementation of the MB curriculum. The MB team will post videos of MB intervention sessions between clients and home visitors to support training and implementation. All MB training and implementation resources and session delivery videos will be hosted on the MB website (www.mothersandbabiesprogram.org) for home visiting programs, providers, clients and consultants to access. The MB team will provide MIECHV with brief communications highlighting MB resources and video sessions to encourage and support ongoing implementation, for dissemination to MIECHV home visiting program staff.
MB-TXT Messaging Platform. The MB team will maintain the Healthy SMS MB-TXT text messaging platform for use by Illinois home visitors, whose training and access began in FY20, to supplement MB intervention delivery with text messages. 100% of Illinois home visitors, whose MB-TXT training and access began in FY20, will continue to have access to utilize the MB-TXT text messaging platform to supplement MB intervention delivery, if they choose to maintain access. The MB team will conduct outreach, training, and technical support for current and additional home visitors to use the MB-TXT platform to supplement MB intervention delivery. All MB-trained Illinois home visiting programs, who have not previously participated, who will receive information, and be offered training and technical support to use the MB-TXT platform to supplement their MB intervention delivery.
