Teaching Young Children with Disabilities Online

cec dec logosAs professionals transition to providing services and education online, the importance of engaging young children with exceptionalities and their families is especially important. In partnership with the Division for Early Childhood (DEC), we'll be bringing you webinars and Quick Takes to help you move your interventions online.

Stress Detectives and Safe Harbors: Helping Children Feel Secure

Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak will explore the idea of being a "stress detective” and how to navigate challenges that allow us to reimagine early care and educational practices that emphasize relationships and wholeness, especially for children with diverse abilities and their families. Following the webinar you’ll have tons of practical strategies for creating “safe harbors” and tools for helping children (and the adults who serve them) manage energy and tensions (aka self-regulate). Watch the video and access the resources.

Addressing & Assessing the Needs of Young Children with Disabilities through Telecommunication

In this webinar, Robin McWilliam, Ph.D. and Cami Stevenson discuss how we can find out who’s in the family’s ecology, what the child and family needs are, develop participation-based child goals and family goals, construct a routines-by-goals matrix, and provide support-based visits—all done remotely. Watch the video and access the resources.
