National Outcomes

UF NCES’ mission and key principles support the following national outcomes for children and families:

Family Outcomes

Every year, for a period of three months, we ask families preparing to leave UF North Central Early Steps to provide us with feedback by answering an online Family Outcomes Survey.

We ask families to tell us how as a result of the individualized support and services families received, they will:

  • Know their rights
  • Effectively communicate their child’s needs
  • Help their child develop and learn

Child Outcomes

The three child outcomes include functional skills and behaviors that are important for a child’s participation in day-by-day routines across settings and situations.

Children will demonstrate improved:

  • Positive social-emotional skills and social relationships
  • Acquisition of knowledge of skills including language and communication
  • Use of appropriate behaviors to meet their needs
