CORREA, Wesley; MINETTO, Maria de Fatima  and  CREPALDI, Maria Aparecida. Family as a promoter of the development of children with delays. Pensando fam. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp. 44-58. ISSN 1679-494X.

This paper makes a theoretical revision to understand the family as an environment that promotes human development. The family corresponds to the main context of a child's interrelationships. In this way, the quality of the family environment and the relationships established in this context directs the evolution of child’s development. A baby, when arriving to a familiar environment, demands structural changes, and when this child presents delays in its development, the way the family faces this reality can propitiate risk to the development of the child and the whole family. Early Intervention Programs seek to understand child development from a multidimensional perspective, changing the focus to be only on the child and his / her deficit, to consider three main characteristics: family, community and interdisciplinary teamwork.

Keywords : Family; Family environment; Early intervention; Developmental delays; Child development.
