Social Emotional

Although exhibiting some challenging behavior during early childhood is typical and varies greatly across environ­ments, some children exhibit challenging behaviors that are more chronic and result in significant difficulties for the child, family, and learning environment. In these cases, it is impor­tant to have specialized early intervention services available to them and their families as soon as possible to help prevent long-term difficulties. The initial step towards detection of such problems and the preven­tion of more severe issues is to conduct screenings across devel­opmental areas to help identify those children and families that would benefit from early and targeted intervention strat­egies.  This talk will discuss social emotional issues in young children and how to screen and refer these children.
