One of the most crucial time periods for learning and development in a child’s life is from birth to the age of 5. Because 90% of the brain develops during this time, children are meeting new milestones almost every day. But what happens if we notice a child isn’t meeting their developmental milestones? How do we spot a need and who do we turn to for support? In this course, participants will learn how to track a child’s development and what steps they should take for obtaining support. We will discuss methods and tools that can be used both in the classroom and shared with parents. Course Length – 3.5 hours
The course will help answer the following questions:
How do I know if a child isn’t meeting developmental milestones?
