Referring Children to Early Intervention in Child Care Setting (1 SCECH)

January 27th, 1-2pm

Jennifer Koenigsknecht, Public Awareness Coordinator, Clinton County RESA Office of Innovative Projects

Laura Goldthwait, M.Ed., Education Consultant – Early On® , Michigan Department of Education

Do you know what to do if a child in your care is not meeting their developmental milestones or has a pre-existing health condition? Early On® Michigan offers early intervention services for families who have infants and toddlers, birth to three years of age, with developmental delay(s) and/or disabilities. Research has shown that by addressing delays early on – especially between birth and age 3 – we can more effectively impact a child’s development, even into adulthood. In addition, children ages 3 through 5 with developmental concerns or difficulty learning may be eligible for preschool special education services and support. Build Up Michigan helps parents and their young children get additional educational support as they learn the skills needed to enter kindergarten.

All registrants will receive access to the live session on January 27th with on-demand access to the training and materials through February 10th, 2021. If you are unable to attend the live session on January 27th you may still receive training credit with completion of on-demand materials and evaluation. Space is limited.
