ZERO TO THREE has developed a comprehensive series of materials to meet the needs of the parents, caregivers, and professionals who are supporting the more than 500,000 babies born to military families during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. The ZERO TO THREE materials address the continuum of challenges of military life, from the day-to-day stress of deployment and relocation to the intense challenges of trauma, grief, and loss that are experienced by some families.
These materials provide a platform for professionals to open a dialogue to support babies and toddlers in their healthy development during these crucial years. They also provide similar opportunities for parents to communicate with their youngest children and support them through these challenging times. Through the wide dissemination of materials, there is an increase in the awareness of methods to support babies and toddlers and to build communities that are prepared with the information and resources they need to support the next generation of military families.
