If you have questions about your infant or toddler’s development (or other children such as your grandchildren or those under your care) you are in luck because the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) and the Interagency Coordinating Council (ICC) have FREE resources for parents, grandparents, family members, and professionals so they can learn more about early intervention and, if needed, how to get connected to the best services possible. This is so important that California’s first ever Surgeon General, Dr. Nadine Burke Harris, has a public service announcement (PSA) that she would like to share far and wide. Dr. Burke Harris is a pediatrician and knows just how critical early intervention services are to ensuring the best possible outcomes for infants and toddlers who may need support in their development. The PSA can be found on DDS’ You Tube page here: https://youtu.be/j5U_bCp7y40. The video also features closed captioning in English and Spanish.
Please share this PSA with everyone you know because you never know who might benefit, but we do know that EARLY INTERVENTION MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
