ABC Home Visitor

Posted: 10/29/2019

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 to serve Wyandotte, Douglas, and Leavenworth counties in Kansas. The ABC program was developed through 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 Home Visitor will provide weekly one-on-one home-based visits to parents and provide feedback and coaching on specific parenting behaviors that lead to strong attachment and self-regulation. Project Eagle is in search of two ABC Home Visitors.
