Construir as Competências dos Adultos para Melhorar o Desempenho das Crianças: Uma Teoria de Mudança

Construir as Competências dos Adultos para Melhorar o Desempenho das Crianças: Uma Teoria de Mudança is the Portuguese translation of Building Adult Capabilities to Improve Child Outcomes: A Theory of Change, a 5-minute video that depicts a theory of change from the Frontiers of Innovation community for achieving breakthrough outcomes for vulnerable children and families. It describes the need to focus on building the capabilities of caregivers and strengthening the communities that together form the environment of relationships essential to children’s lifelong learning, health, and behavior.

This video has been translated and adapted for a Brazilian audience as part of the Center on the Developing Child’s collaboration with local experts to use the science of child health and development to guide stronger policies and larger investments to benefit young children and their families in Brazil. The Center collaborates with the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University, Fundação Maria Cecilia Souto Vidigal, the Faculty of Medicine at the University of São Paulo, and Insper.
