Abstract

Date Presented 03/29/20

This study evaluated the feasibility, acceptability, and value of implementing the Young Children’s Participation and Environment Measure (YC-PEM) as an evidence-based, family-centered, and electronic participation-focused assessment option within an early-intervention setting. Results support the implementation of YC-PEM as a feasible, acceptable, and valued option for engaging families in planning family-centered and participation-focused early-intervention services.
