(FACETS) project in Outreach Training. The experiences with direct service
provision and training provide the foundation for the "next-generation"
of practice. Family Guided Routines Bases Intervention (FGRBI) continued the development of the model with a series of single subject research studies and Facilitating Administrative Change Toward Infant/Toddler Community Services (FACTICS) is designed to assist with program implementation.
