Family Development aims to provide professional development opportunities, online resources and information to support professionals working with military families.
We recognize that while military families may have similar needs as civilian families, they also face unique situations that can positively and negatively impact family life. Our focus connects largely to early intervention, family strengthening, family violence prevention and treatment and has targeted individuals in the mental health, family advocacy, and education fields.
Early Intervention (EI) operates within the Family Development team of the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN). The overall purpose of EI is to enhance the capacity of professionals working with military families who have young children (birth to 5 years old) with or who are at-risk for disabilities and developmental delays.
