Implementation Supports

Start Early Washington is DCYF’s partner in administering the Home Visiting Services Account, supporting programs with quality implementation in fidelity to their model. 

About the Start Early Home Visiting Implementation Hub

Visit Start Early’s website to learn more about their supports, including:


ACEs: Adverse Childhood Experiences harm children’s developing brains. Each person can take a 10-question survey to determine his or her ACE score. ACEs are risk factors, not determinants.

There are ways to engage the ACEs questionnaire as a home visitor without causing distress or harm. Start Early has developed the NEAR@Home Toolkit and Facilitated Learning process to support home visiting programs with talking to families and about ACES. For more information about these resources, visit Start Early’s website.
