MEETING THE SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT NEEDS OF INFANTS AND TODDLERS
The focus of this training is on the Social and Emotional Development Needs of Infants and Toddlers, and is designed for all early intervention professionals working with children and families in the Early Intervention Program. In 2017, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) Bureau of Early Intervention issued the Guidance Document entitled Meeting the Social-Emotional Development Needs of Infants and Toddlers Guidance for Early Intervention Program Providers and Other Early Childhood Professionals. This Guidance Document was developed to inform Early Intervention providers of strategies they can build upon, to strengthen positive relationships with children and their families, share empowering information, join with parents to promote and strengthen all areas of their child’s development, including the social-emotional domain, and provide linkages, supports and services when indicated.
The five modules in this training series are designed to describe the NYS DOH Social-Emotional Guidance Document, provide a brief overview of its content, and provide specific instructions for Early Intervention professionals working in the Early Intervention Program to address social-emotional development for the children and families they serve.
Participants who successfully complete this course will earn 4 professional development hours, which can be used one time only towards the annual professional development requirements, as outlined in the New York State Department of Health Bureau of Early Intervention Provider Agreement. Additionally, 0.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are awarded with full completion of this course (4 contact hours/ 0.4 credits).
The Department would like to thank the Early Intervention Coordinating Council’s (EICC’s) Workgroup on Social Emotional Development, for their assistance in developing this training.
