About the Webinar
Join us for Part II of this Act Early Forum Webinar, Stories from State Systems Grantees - What works, what doesn’t and why, to hear more success stories and lessons learned from the 2013 Act Early State Systems Grantees. The Act Early State Systems Grants support the collaboration of the Act Early State Teams and work to further the activities initiated by state teams during the Act Early Summits. During this webinar, grantees from Nevada and Arkansas will discuss their projects on training child care providers on developmental screening, and developing new resources for families of children with autism spectrum disorder, including families of minority and under-represented populations. There will be ample time for questions on what works, what doesn’t, and why. We hope you will be able to join us!
