Research shows that actively engaged parents have higher satisfaction with home intervention services than more passive participants. A major component of Family Guided Routines Based Intervention is building capacity within families. Busy families have limited time to spend reading parenting and child development books. This family resource portal is designed to meet the needs of busy families who are interested in learning about child development and issues related to early childhood. The sites presented in this information portal have been researched for relevancy of content and reliability of information ensuring that families can quickly and easily access accurate information about their child. This portal allows parents to be life-long learners and empowers them to seek knowledge regarding their child while improving their parenting skills.
