Are you a provider of early intervention services? This resource is for you!
As part of the "Take a Minute" campaign in support of the California State Systemic Improvement Plan (SSIP) to improve social-emotional outcomes for Early Start infants and toddlers, the Department of Developmental Services and WestEd's Center for Prevention & Early Intervention have developed a two-page "checklist" of best practices in promoting social-emotional development when working with families in Early Start. The checklist features eight (8) tips on how you can support the parent-child relationship, which is key to social-emotional growth. You can download and print the checklist and keep it with you, or view it digitally on your smartphone or tablet.
This checklist is a great addition to any provider's toolkit, and it supports the wonderful work you are already doing with Early Start children and their families! Take a minute and check out this new resource!
