    Hello, early childhood experts!

    I am managing a mini-conference on June 2 called "Boost Summer Learning for Your Child: Advice from the Experts." Our keynote will be a child psychiatrist and one of the guest presenters will be discussing the importance of SEL connections in the home.

    I'm wondering what topics you think are most important for these presenters to touch on - please brainstorm with me below!
    What questions would you have for a child psychiatrist at this time?

    Thanks for your help!

    Your partner in education,

    The impact and behavioral manifestation of trauma, the children returning to programs have experienced some traumatic changes in their lives.  For many everything about their routines changed overnight without warning and truly parents did not have all the answers to help support their children through such a tough transition, especially when they were not prepared themselves.  Focusing on how to listen, interpret behaviors through this lens and respond thoughtfully would be amazing support for teachers and all staff.

    Ways that children and parents can better adjust to the "new normal" as state lock-downs are lifted.
