"Family engagement refers to the systematic inclusion of families in activities and programs that promote children's development, learning, and wellness, including in the planning, development, and evaluation of such activities, programs, and systems."
The ECTA Center works with states to increase family engagement in the development, review, and/or improvement of policies, procedures, and practices affecting IDEA Part C and Part B, Section 619 services and supports for young children with developmental delays and disabilities and their families. In addition to federal and national center resources, ECTA has collected a video series on supporting family leaders.
