Infusing a Developmental Approach into Child Welfare Services for Infants and Toddlers
This webinar highlighted the release of an assessment tool for states entitled A Developmental Approach to Child Welfare Services for Infants, Toddlers, and Their Families: A Self-Assessment Tool for States and Counties Administering Child Welfare Services.
As a companion piece to A Call to Action on Behalf of Maltreated Infants and Toddlers, this comprehensive assessment tool helps states and counties examine ways to embed a quality, developmental approach to serving infants and toddlers in the child welfare system, as well as meet the new federal requirements for state child welfare plans. Leading child welfare and early childhood organizations (Center for the Study of Social Policy, Child Trends, Children’s Defense Fund, National Black Child Development Institute, National Council of La Raza, and Voices for America’s Children) collaborated with ZERO TO THREE in the creation of this important tool.
