Does This Child Need Help?
About our Does This Child Need Help? eLearning course:
What happens when an educator or health professional is concerned about a child’s development? What steps should they take next? Research tells us that the earlier a child in need of intervention is identified and referred for help, the better the chance they have to get the support they need. This can lead to better outcomes for children and their families.
