Ready to Learn: Challenges in Early Development
Part of the Ten-Session Seminar Series for School Psychologists, School Social Workers and School Guidance Counselors
Seminars meet via Zoom.
This initial seminar will consider key components in early caregiving relationships that support the development of lifelong foundations for learning, and review some of the resulting challenges we see throughout the school years when those important components are missing or distorted due to disruptions, trauma, illness or injury, and other threats to healthy development.
By the completion of this one-session workshop, participants will be able to:
- Explain key components for healthy relationships in the early years.
- Report on some of the learning challenges that can arise in the absence of healthy foundations for learning.
