Ohio Ready to Learn 3: Including Children with Special Needs in Early Childhood Programs ***SUTQ-Approved***

Participants will examine and discuss the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it relates to the early childhood care environment. Participants will also be able to describe several methods of adapting environments and experiences for individual children, including children with special needs. Finally, participants will plan learning experiences that will help young children to be able to identify similarities and differences of personal, family and cultural characteristics.

 

Breathe Easy: Asthma (New Workshop) ***SUTQ-Approved***

Likely you have, or will have, a child in your care who has asthma. Do you know how to help that child avoid having asthma episodes, and what to do if an episode occurs? This workshop gives you the information and resources you need to provide excellent care for a child with asthma. After attending this session, over 50% of people who care for children with asthma report seeing an improvement in the child’s symptoms. See what a difference you can make!
