The HOME Inventory is a measure of home stimulation available to children. The purposes of the study were to: (a) examine the psychometric properties of a Thai-translated HOME (Infant/Toddler), (b) compare Thai mean HOME scores with three groups (Hmong, Eskimo, HOME normative sample in the state of Washington) reported in the literature. A convenience sample from Mahasarakham public health centers in northeastern Thailand was assessed using 36 dyads of mothers and toddlers, 13-35 months. The internal consistency was 0.81 for the total scale; F-tests of the HOME total scale and subscale means showed significant differences between Thai and three other groups. Scheffe tests which showed Thai means on three subscales (Maternal Involvement, Responsivity, Restriction) were not significantly different from the Washington sample, but were significantly lower on three subscales (Play, Organization, Stimulation). Further study is needed on the use of home assessment instruments by nurses and others working in multicultural settings.
