Austin Early Childhood Collaborative Presents Early Learning Professional Development Series

Supporting Social and Emotional Development Standards

This training series is designed to equip childcare professionals with the information and know-how to better support the social and emotional development of Austin's young children.

March Session features:

"A Developmental Approach to Conversations with Infants & Toddlers 0 – 3", 9:00am – 1:00pm
Facilitator: Colleen Whittingham, University of Illinois at Chicago

Participants will be introduced to the basic components of social and emotional learning, with a focus on building relationships.  We will then discuss the rapid development of children across this three-year continuum, and how providers' approaches to learning must adjust as quickly as children change.  Through the use of video clip examples and vignettes, participants will discuss each scene and develop age appropriate strategies that providers can use in facilitating the emotional security of children in their care.

“Building a Strong Foundation”, 9:00am – 1:00pm

Facilitator: Sara Anderson, Erikson Institute

This workshop will cover basic milestones of social-emotion development from birth to age 3 based on our knowledge of attachment. We will learn how young children’s understanding of people around them grows and develops, and about the delicate balance between dependence on others and becoming their own little person. At each step, we will discuss the many ways caregivers can support and guide the child’s growth through play, providing interactions with other children, age-appropriate discipline strategies, and helping the child learn to cope with separations, limits, and rules. The session will also talk about developmental “red flags”. Training will be based on PowerPoint, video clips, and ample time for discussion.

"Child Development and the Importance of Play”, 9:00am – 1:00pm (Available in Spanish Only)

Emphasis on Social-emotional Development and Red Flags in Social-Emotional Domain

Facilitator: Sinane Goulet, Erikson Institute

This training will explain the five developmental domains, using games and puzzles to highlight the importance of play in promoting optimal child development.  Emphasis will then focus on the Social-emotional domain, highlighting key theories and concepts that affect social-emotional development in the first three years of life.  Trainers will follow by explaining behaviors that may indicate concern and requiring further screening.  Trainers will also detail administration of the Ages and Stages Social-Emotional/ASQ-SE Questionnaire and discuss referral procedures and community resources for further services.

“Desarrollo del bebé y el infante y la Importancia del Juego”, 9:00am – 1:00pm (Disponible en español solamente)
