Supporting A Child’s Development During Difficult Times with Fran Goldfarb, a Virtual Presentation on Tuesday, 05.17.2022

A Virtual Event
As we know, a child’s development can be impacted by many things; toxic stress can hinder development just as the presence of a reliable adult can support it. Currently we, as a community, nation and world, are facing stressors that are beyond the control of families. In this session we will discussthe impact of COVID 19, institutionalized racism and other factors on families and in turn, on the development of young children, and how we can support a child’s development, even in difficult times. The CDC has released new Developmental Milestones. An update on the information and how to share it with families will be addressed.
Limited Availability.  Early registration recommended.
