Partnering with families to improve outcomes for children 6 to 48 months of age

Parenting can be a tough job. We’re here to help!

Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC) is offered to parents and caregivers with children between the ages of 6 and 48 months. ABC will strengthen your positive relationship with your child while helping your child to develop in a healthy way. Your relationship with your child can actually help to protect him or her from stress in life. ABC is designed to help you read, identify, and respond to your baby’s signals. Your Parent Coach will check in weekly to see how things are going and provide support for your parenting.

Children and families who have participated in ABC services have shown:

  • Fewer and less intense tantrums

  • Increased self-control

  • Increased self-esteem

  • Improved ability to manage change

  • Better child sleeping habits

  • Easier soothing

  • Reduction in parenting stress

  • Strengthened brain development

  • Less frustration from challenging activities

  • Better regulation of stress hormones

  • Fewer social and emotional problems

  • More secure attachment
