Attachment & Biobehavioral Catch-up (ABC)

MISSION:

ABC aims to support infants and toddlers who have experienced early adversity, such as neglect or a change in caregivers. Parent coaches help caregivers learn to follow their children’s lead with delight, behave in nurturing ways when children are distressed, and avoid behaving in frightening or intrusive ways.

POPULATION SERVED:

  • Low-income families

  • Families with history of child abuse or neglect/involvement with child welfare system

  • Families who consider their child to be growing up in a challenging environment

  • Children experiencing a caregiving transition (e.g., foster care placement, adoption)
