Empowering Every Child: Early Intervention in Child Care

Research says that early diagnosis and intervention are beneficial for a child’s development, and for improving outcomes and quality of life for all family members. Accurate diagnosis is also needed for identifying developmentally appropriate interventions by education, health and social services providers. A high-quality childcare program has a positive impact on child’s development thanks to the important role of well-educated early childhood educators who bring effective strategies and caring relationships to their work with young children and their families.


This workshop will discuss and define what developmental delay/disorders are, help identify early warning signs, and provide ideas on how to talk to parents about concerns regarding their child’s needs for potential assessment. It will also provide strategies for developing effective strategies to support a child’s development and inclusion in childcare. In addition, we will also include ideas on making connections and building strong relationships with parents and other community services programs such as early intervention teams.


Join us 9:00-9:30AM for light refreshments!
