Abstract: This CASEmaker bibliography includes selected references to a framework to early childhood intervention and family support that aims to strengthen and build child, parent, and family capacity and competence (Dunst, 2000, 2004). This approach is called the Integrated Framework for Practicing and Studying Early Childhood Intervention and Family Support. Selected references are organized under Theoretical Foundations, Conceptual Foundations, Operational Foundations, and Performance Foundations.

Integration: This framework is a result of research conducted by Dr. Dunst showing the positive child and family outcomes that result from embedding interventions into regularly occurring family and community activities.

Content Focus: Early Intervention; Family Support; Infants, Toddlers, and Twos
