Abstract

The purpose of this article is twofold. One, we demonstrate a family empowerment model for serving diverse families to support the DEC and NAEYC Families standards. Two, we provide strategies for early childhood practitioners to empower diverse families in identifying family concerns, priorities, and resources. Additionally, we discuss ways to effectively communicate with families within culturally responsive contexts. In conclusion, we provide resources and illustrate how to effectively communicate and collaborate with families, with the ultimate goal of improving child outcomes and family functioning.
