Family engagement is critical to a high-quality early childhood program. Research in early intervention tells us that parents are a young child’s best teacher. The Autism Navigator is a resource demonstrating coaching practices that can increase a caregiver’s competence and confidence to support their child’s development now and in the child’s future. Embedded in family-based coaching are ABA practices. Family coaching supports parents’ ability to implement ABA strategies, thus increasing time engaged in learning. Family-based coaching is recognized by the CEC’s Division for Early Childhood as an evidence- based practice.
