In May of 2021, Part 1 of this webinar series introduced attendees to the Division for Early Childhood’s (DEC) Recommended Practices (RPs). DEC Recommended Practices offer guidance to parents and professionals who work with young children who have or are at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. The practices had been recently revised and updated in collaboration with the Early Childhood Technical Assistance Center (ECTA), and the Part 1 webinar focused on familiarizing attendees with many of the resources and materials developed in partnership with the ECTA Center to support family use of the RPs in order to promote positive outcomes for young children (0-8) with or at risk of developmental delays and disabilities.

Part 2 of the series built upon the information shared in the first webinar. In Part 2, presenters discussed a variety of practice ways to SHARE the RPs as part of the ongoing work of a Parent Center. Presenters then identified ways  in which Parent Centers can use the RPs in their daily work with families.
