All programs that serve young children and their families can improve outcomes for children by making a difference for their families. This video describes the importance of supporting families, collecting data on family outcomes, and using the data to improve the program. Using the family data collected by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education’s Part C/Early Intervention Program as an example, this video highlights how three families who received early intervention benefited from support to their family. This video is a companion to the video Child Outcomes: Step-By-Step Videos.
The intended audience for this video is program staff, leaders, and families in all programs for young children, including early care and education, early childhood special education, early intervention, child care, and Head Start.
