Join us for a professional development event designed to help you support children birth to three years old who have special needs. This event is funded by the Maryland State Department of Education. Thanks to this funding, the registration fee for this event is only $5.
This professional development series consists of one 3-hour training session, and two 1-hour follow up technical assistance sessions. The series is designed to encourage in-depth learning that supports each participant’s ability to implement strategies and techniques that support infants and toddlers with special needs.
In order to receive a certificate of completion for core of knowledge hours, providers MUST attend the entire series, including all 3 parts.
Part 1: February 23, 2022 (6:30 pm-9:30 pm)
During this training, participants will learn strategies and “fun” activities to assist preschool and school aged children in exploring their feelings for the purpose of promoting Emotional Intelligence. Participants will learn about the connection between Multiple Intelligences and Emotional Intelligence. Participants will explore sample “feeling stations,” and learn about potential “red flag” behaviors in children that may need to be addressed by a mental health professional.
