What is the Future of Family Outcomes and Family-Centered Services?

Abstract: 

Public Law 99-457 emphasized the central role of family support in programs serving young children with disabilities. In the 25 years since it passed, much work has been done to describe the principles and practices that characterize effective family support. However, how to effectively promote family outcomes through programs serving infants, toddlers, and preschoolers is less clear. In this article, the authors explain family-centered practices and summarize the data that supports using these practices. The authors also explain that early intervention and preschool programs are not held accountable for family outcomes; rather, they are limited to showing only that families are satisfied with services. Predicting that family outcomes will not be part of any national accountability effort in the near future (until research clearly shows that such outcomes ultimately will benefit children), the authors then suggest several areas where work is needed in order to advance the field so that they may make an informed policy decision about documenting family benefit.
