About This Series:

The Early Intervention team’s four-part webinar series for 2022 discusses equitable, culturally sustaining early intervention (EI) and early childhood (EC) care and education strategies and their application in a virtual, or telehealth, environment.  These webinars address family coaching practices, aspects of the transition process in various contexts, and common challenges often experienced by families and practitioners in virtual settings. These free webinars are easy to join and offer continuing education credits. Participants are encouraged to attend all 4 sessions, but it is not necessary. Webinars are recorded and archived for later viewing if live attendance is not possible.
