(CNSNews.com) - Former Vice President Joe Biden is promising as part of his “education” plan to send what he calls “child development specialists” into the homes of Americans who have young children.

The program was initiated under Obamacare.

“President Biden will double funding for home visiting so more families benefit from this program every year,” says Biden’s plan under the heading “Expand home visiting."

“Through the Affordable Care Act, President Obama and Vice President Biden funded voluntary home visiting programs, under which health and child development specialists make consistent, scheduled visits to help parents through the critical early stage of parenting,” says Biden’s plan.

“Families may receive coaching on preventive health and prenatal practices, learn how to care for their babies and about important child development milestones and behaviors, receive breastfeeding support, get connected to employment and child care, and receive general support in navigating the often-stressful early stages of parenthood,” it says.

“Home visiting has been found to improve school readiness, maternal, and child health, and reduce child maltreatment,” it says.
