Zero to Three is sponsoring a free webinar:
Meeting the Developmental Needs of Infants and Toddlers in the Child Welfare System
May 7, 2012 11:00 – 12:45
Speakers include:
Fred Wulczyn, Ph.D., Senior Research Fellow, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago;
Brenda Jones Harden, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Institute for Child Study, University of Maryland;
Cecile Blucker, Director of the Division of Children and Family Services within the Arkansas Department of Human Services;
Patricia A. Cole (Moderator), Director of Government Relations, ZERO TO THREE

ZERO TO THREE and the Child Welfare Information Gateway are partnering to present a webinar about how the science of early childhood development could inform child welfare policies and practices for infants and toddlers.

Soon state child welfare agencies will be required to update their state plans to include a description of how they are meeting the developmental needs of young children, making this topic especially timely.

This webinar will focus first on what the data on young children, especially infants, tell us about young children’s experiences in the child welfare system. It will also explore the impact of maltreatment on development and how early intervention can support development. Finally, it will point administrators and stakeholders to a framework for designing a developmental approach to caring for young children in the child welfare system and their families and provide a state perspective on how to get started.

You can register at here.
