EarlyBrain - Empowering Families in Early Childhood Intervention
The EarlyBrain project aims to provide parents and relatives of children with developmental disorders with specific knowledge and skills to promote the development of their children.
EarlyBrain is characterised by a joint, transdisciplinary and coordinated action to understand the child from a biopsychosocial approach, and to empower parents, family members and caregivers. It will promote the exchange of promising practices and raise awareness on the need of early childhood interventions in line with the Child Guarantee, UNCRC and UNCRPD.
- Parents and family of children needing early intervention care;
- Professionals working with children in the health, education, and social sector;
- Support service providers of early childhood intervention;
- Policymakers in the field of the health, education, and social sector;
- Disability support and service organisations;

EarlyBrain will deliver four main results:
- A toolkit with training contents for adult relatives/caregivers, including best practices and illustrated tales and stories (D1).
- Policy recommendations to address early care (D2) aimed at raising awareness among policy and decision makers.
- Two events aimed at disseminating the toolkit among adult relatives/caregivers in Spain (E1) and Italy (E2).
