Abstract Project Ecosystems is an ecobehavioral approach to the treatment of families of children with developmental disabilities. Children in these families are highrisk for placement into more restrictive settings because of their severe behavioral excesses or deficits, or multiple handicaps. Also, because of these problems, they represent a risk of child abuse or neglect. The project focuses on the multifaceted environmental factors that contribute to the problem of keeping a child with developmental disabilities at home. Described here are the nine services provided by Project Ecosystems in an effort to treat and prevent the placement, abuse, or neglect of these children in four southern California counties.
