Webinar Descriptions:

As a result of the opioid epidemic impacting many states, the early childhood system will be challenged to appropriately identify and serve very young children who have been exposed to prenatal substance use. Part C and preschool special education programs will have new and different issues in meeting child and family needs. Understanding and meeting the needs of the eligible population will require partnering with other early childhood programs as well as providing training and support for the professionals who will serve the family.
