Many early educators struggle with identifying developmental milestones and communicating concerns with parents. The CDC has developed a FREE 1 hour training module (Watch Me! Celebrating Milestones and Sharing Concerns) that is great for in-service staff meetings.

Continuing Education (CE) credit is available. Participants must complete all 4 modules, each quiz, and a final evaluation to qualify. Click here for additional information: http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/watchmetraining/index.html
