Infants and Young Children With Special Needs

Mar 7, 2016

This session will focus on supporting families and providers in their relationships with young children with special needs.

We know that the early years establish the foundation upon which later learning and development take place. Although babies grow and develop at different rates, most follow a predictable path and learn to walk, talk, and gain new skills in expected ways. For some young children, however, development unfolds according to a slower timetable or in an atypical fashion. For those infants and toddlers with a disability or developmental delay, intervening early can make all the difference in the world. This session will focus on supporting families and providers in their relationships with young children with special needs.

Our topic experts are available for onsite sessions, webinars, and keynotes and presentations at conferences.
