The Ages and Stages of Children - Supporting Developmental Milestones

Nov 28 2017

Every family looks forward to seeing a child's first smile, first step, and first words. Regular screening with the support of early childhood providers helps to raise awareness of a child's development, making it easier to expect and celebrate developmental milestones. All of our children need support in the early years to make sure they stay healthy and happy. Just like hearing and vision screenings assure that children can hear and see clearly, developmental and behavioral screenings assure that children are making developmental progress in areas such as language, social, or motor development. Screening is a regular part of growing up. Screenings can identify possible delays and concerns early. With regular screenings, families and child care providers can assure that young children get the services and support they may need, as early as possible to help them thrive alongside their peers. You will leave this workshop with access to simple tools for screening, and confidence and knowledge of the importance of partnering with parents. Presented by Rayma Ware, PEAK Trainer (Partnership for Early Access for Kids), Resource & Referral Trainer.
