ABC Home Visiting Program Coordinator
Project Eagle is a program of the University of Kansas Medical Center’s Institute for Community Engagement that provides home- and center-based early childhood education programs and support to Wyandotte County families with young children. Project Eagle is expanding their Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up (ABC) Home Visiting program through Family First Prevention Services Act funding through the Kansas Department for Children and Families. The ABC Home Visiting program was developed by researchers at the University of Delaware to help parents develop positive engagement and interaction with their infants and young children. Studies show that responsive and sensitive caregiving protects babies and young children from environmental stress and promotes secure attachment and self-regulation. ABC is a home-based parent-coaching program that supports caregivers in their innate ability to parent responsively and sensitively in order to help their children thrive cognitively and emotionally. The ABC Program Coordinator will provide supervision for four ABC Home Visitors and ongoing oversight of the ABC program. The ABC Coordinator will also provide weekly one-on-one home-based visits to a small caseload of families as needed and provide infant and early childhood mental health consultation to all Project Eagle home-based families as needed.
