Foundations For Infant/Toddler Social Emotional Health and Development 


Bradley Hasbro Children's Research Center, in collaboration with Bradley Hospital’s Department of Behavioral Education and the Rhode Island Association for Infant Mental Health (RIAIMH), has developed an online course, “Foundations for Infant/Toddler Social Emotional Health and Development.” 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.

Foundations of Infant and Toddlers Social Emotional Health and Development:  For Providers 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 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 tracks and monitors user participation and provides post-assessments of learning. Upon completion of the course, students can print a transcript. The course is aligned with various established professional development opportunities throughout the infant/toddler system of care.

La salud social y emocional es la base de todo el desarrollo de bebés y niños pequeños. Durante los primeros tres años de vida, el cerebro de un bebé se desarrolla más rápidamente que en cualquier otro momento. Los médicos del Hospital Bradley en asociación con la Asociación de Salud Mental Infantil de Rhode Island han desarrollado un curso en línea gratuito que ofrece información sobre la salud y el desarrollo social y emocional de un bebé, y destaca la importancia de las experiencias positivas de relación temprana.
