Identifying Children’s Milestones and Early Intervention: Virtual On Demand Course
January 30 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
This is a special offer from Chatham LICC to pay for child care providers to complete two courses on Identifying Children’s Milestones and Early Intervention. This class is on demand and can be taken at anytime.
This opportunity is for Chatham County providers only.
Course 1: Watch Me! Celebrating Milestones and Sharing Concerns: A course from the CDC.
As an early care and education provider, you play a critical role in the health and wellbeing of children. You are also very well positioned to help identify children who might need extra help in their development. This FREE, online training course, Watch Me! Celebrating Milestones and Sharing Concerns, helps you fulfill this role by providing tools and best practices for monitoring the development of children in your care and talking about it with their parents.
This 1-hour, 4-module course focuses on:
- Why monitoring children’s development is important
- Why you have a unique and important role in developmental monitoring
- How to easily monitor each child’s developmental milestones
- How to talk with parents about their child’s development
Learning objectives for the training include:
- List three developmental concerns that early care and education providers should monitor.
- Identify at least three developmental milestones for class’s age group.
- Describe how to use “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” resources in early care and education work with children and parents.
- Describe two communication strategies to use when talking with families about their child’s development.
Course 2: Early Intervention: An Introduction This course is offered by Penn State Better Kid Care
Early Intervention (EI) consists of services and supports designed to help children who have developmental delays/special needs, and their families. Because early educators work so closely with children, they play an important role in identifying and supporting children’s developmental strengths and challenges. This lesson focuses on understanding Early Intervention services and the pivotal role early education providers play as part of the EI team. Awareness of EI helps!
2-3 days after you register you will receive an email with instructions on how to sign up for these two courses.
