NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing Social Impact Researcher in New York, New York
About this Job
The PRIISM Center (https://research.steinhardt.nyu.edu/priism/) is looking for a researcher to support the Háblame Bebé & Nurse-Family Partnership: Improving the home language environment for low-income Hispanic families project. This researcher will be funded by the Moore Sloan Data Science Environment at NYU. The researcher will be funded full-time throughout the summer of 2021.
Háblame Bebé is the first mobile phone application to provide low-income Hispanic caregivers with evidence-based information about bilingual language development and promote sociolinguistic pride and advocate for speaking Spanish within the home. We are implementing Háblame Bebé into the Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP), a non-profit organization which arranges home visits from registered nurses to low-income first-time mothers. Access to Háblame Bebé has been linked with improved parent-child language interactions and increased Hispanic sociolinguistic pride, but has not been tested for use in home visiting programs. We hypothesize that layering this innovative Spanish-language intervention into NFP standards of care will improve language interactions between caregivers and their children.
