Early childhood providers are usually the first ones to recognize developmental issues in young children. This session will review developmental expectations and possible red flags signaling potential delays.  In addition, we will introduce the audience to the steps that could be taken if a preschooler is suspected of having a disability, how to speak with parents about your concerns, what happens once a referral is made and what services are available if the young child is found to be eligible.

Presenters from Lower Hudson Early Childhood Development Center: Suzanne Peretz, Director; Janet Lowe, Resource & Referral and Outreach Coordinator; Barbara Kestenbaum, Professional Development Specialist Please Note: We must have 10 attendees to run this seminar.
