Fall 2015 Infant and Toddler Training Series will focus on Supporting Vulnerable Populations

Presenter Lori Harris shared “One could argue that all infants and toddlers are vulnerable since they are dependent on others for their survival. The most vulnerable of that group are the ones that have families living in conditions that include poverty or abusing drugs and alcohol with few resources available to them. Teachers in classrooms do not always know the details of situations families are facing but do have professional knowledge and obligations to create environments that are safe havens for children and their families.”

Sessions in this five part series will be centered on Child Abuse and Neglect, The Inclusive Classroom, Infant/Toddler Mental Health, Medical Considerations and Language & Culture.

Sessions are scheduled on the following Mondays from 6 – 9 pm:  September 14, 28 and October 12 & 26.  The final session will be held on Saturday, November 7 from 9 am to 3 pm at Manchester Community College in Manchester, NH.
