How does early on help families?
Families talk with Early On staff about their daily routines and the activities. Understanding what life is like for a family helps Early On staff give suggestions and resources for families to better support their child. Families are important partners during visits with Early On, as they actively participate with their child while Early On staff provide guidance and referrals to resources.
