This is a six session series. Many children who enroll in early childhood programs have individual special needs – physical, cognitive, communication, or behavioral challenges. At other times, the child’s needs are identified only after the child enrolls.  Whether identified before enrollment, or after concerns are raised by the educator, additional information and adaptations to the program are required in order to support the child’s growth and learning.  The series will include topics related to meeting the needs of children with special needs who attend early education and care programs. The cost is $25 for the series and EEC training hour certificates will be provided for participation.

Instructor: Linda Schumacher
