Learn The Signs. Act Early

As an early childhood educator or child care provider, you spend your day working with, playing with, and watching children, and you are already familiar with many developmental milestones – such as pointing at objects, smiling, and playing with others – that mark a child’s development.

All children are unique, but sooner or later, you will see a child who is not developing as they should. You are a valuable resource to parents! They look to you for information on their child, and they trust you. The “Learn the Signs. Act Early” campaign has created a series of resources to help you educate parents on the full range of child development.

Please remember that you can always call our Inclusion Specialists, who can come out to your program/home to do a visit. They can complete a general observational visit or they can observe a specific child with parental permission. They are also available by phone or email for consultation and can direct you to or provide additional resources for yourself or your families.
