The Family Map can be used effectively for record keeping and monitoring, self-assessment, and outcomes measurement. Administering the Family Map at the beginning and end of the program year allows programs to monitor improvement across families and to identify new strengths and concerns. It can also help early childcare programs demonstrate the impact of services to families and to determine new kinds of support needed by families.
