Research indicates that the first three years of life are critical for physical, social-emotional, and intellectual development. You will learn about developmental patterns, the domains of development, practical strategies for encouraging optimal development, and how to recognize signs of potential developmental delays.
This 2-hour course is the first in a series of online trainings designed to help child care providers and directors gain a better understanding of how to create an inclusive child care environment for preschool and school-age children with special needs.
All children need opportunities to play, but for children with disabilities, some types of play may be challenging - if not impossible - without adjustments to the environment, materials, or activities. During this 2-hour course, we will discuss how all children benefit from play and ways to make play activities accessible.
This course is designed to help child care providers and directors gain a better understanding of how to create a healthy, safe, and inclusive child care environment for preschool and school-age children. You will learn how to establish such an environment through daily practices to ensure the health and safety of children.
