Foundations for Infant/Toddler Social Emotional Health and Development: Provider Modules
Bradley Early Childhood Clinical Research Center (ECCRC) in collaboration with Bradley Hospital’s Department of Behavioral Education (DBE) and the Rhode Island Association for Infant Mental Health (RIAiMH) have developed an online course entitled, “Foundations for Infant/Toddler Social Emotional Health and Development: Provider Modules.”
This course augments work completed by the National Infant and Toddler Child Care Initiative at Zero to Three, a project of the federal Child Care Bureau. Bradley’s Foundations offers high quality professional development for front-line providers across various community sectors serving infants, toddlers and their families.
The course includes 16 computer-based learning (CBL) modules in three sections:
- Infant/Toddler Development
- Relationships as the Context for Development
- Supporting Infant/Toddler Development: Approaches to Individualization
The modules are embedded in a learning management system that serves to track and monitor user participation and provide post-assessments of learning. Upon completion of the course, students will be able to print a transcript of completed courses. The course can be aligned with various established professional development opportunities throughout the infant/toddler system of care.
