Course: Introduction to Children with Special Needs.
Description:
(Reminder, the first chat is actually during the second week of the course. Because this is a Parent Aware Tier 1 training, there may be some work that needs to be completed before to the first chat, this is why the course is scheduled to start one week prior to the first chat) The incidence of varying disabilities and special needs continue to increase and most child care providers will have the opportunity to care for children with special needs. This workshop will review some of the red flags for developmental concern including challenging behavior, some of the diagnosis most commonly seen such as autism and resources to suport inclusive care. The workshop will also review the referral for screening process and the resources in early intervention.
