Supporting children’s social and emotional development and learning is linked to positive outcomes for all children, but particularly for young children in low-resourced communities. Participants will review the foundations of Emotionally and Culturally Responsive Practices in early childhood settings and learn strategies they can apply immediately. This workshop is appropriate for classroom teachers, program directors who are looking to shift institutional policies to increase children’s outcomes, as well as, speech therapists and others working with individual children.
