Synopsis: A secondary analysis was performed on 5-waves of data from 104 caregivers in systems of care program site to determine the relationship between caregiver involvement in service planning and functional outcomes (i.e., caregiver empowerment and child behavioral strengths). A Generalized Estimating Equations regression analysis demonstrated that prior levels of empowerment (R2 = .31) and caregiver involvement (R2 = .04) predicted changes in caregiver empowerment. Caregiver involvement showed significant indirect effects (R2 = .04) on behavioral strengths. Results suggest that caregivers empowered by their involvement in planning services for their children perceive greater functional improvement in their child.
