The NCAFS, NCATS, and the HOME were used to observe the caregiver/parent-child interaction and the quality of the home environment.
The NCAFS parent, child, and combined totals were not significantly different for the Hmong subjects compared to the normative sample; however, the combined total was considerably lower although not reaching statistical significance (t = 1.90, p = .07).
The NCAFS parent, child, and combined totals were significantly different for the ethnic groups when education was included as a covariant.

The reliability coefficient for NCAFS was r = .85 and for NCATS was r = .80.
NCAFS and NCATS subscale results obtained when comparing the combined normative sample with the Hmong sample identify where cultural differences exist in the tools.
The Hmong sample parents scored lower in the subscale social emotional growth fostering in the NCATS, just as they did in the NCAFS. Three of the 11 items primarily contributed to these differences.
