The Early Childhood Family Advocate program promotes early learning and kindergarten readiness through training and support to parents of children ages birth to eight by addressing each family’s unique strengths, barriers, and needs to provide individualized attention and support leading to child and family success. Early Childhood Family Advocates also conduct developmental screenings according to the Ages & Stages Questionnaire and the KOF, a kindergarten readiness assessment. 

Early Childhood Family Advocates encourage parental engagement in children’s education and development at home by: modeling appropriate parent-child interactions to stimulate learning; providing opportunities for early evaluation; and facilitating parental understanding and monitoring of child development and brain architecture during structured home or office visits, parent workshops, and when making referrals to community resources.
