Helpful Sites for Providers

Build From Birth (by Kansas Health Foundation) Cuddling and being loving with a child encourages good self-image. The simple act of playing builds connections in a child’s rapidly developing brain. Research shows sharing books — along with singing, rhyming, drawing and storytelling — promotes language skills as well as motor development, memory, attention span and a child’s social and emotional development. Start now. Take a few moments to explore their site. Even better, do it with a child. It will help you build something great.

The Technical Assistance Center on Social Emotional Intervention for Young Children, also known as TACSEI, is a five-year grant made possible by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs. TACSEI takes the research that shows which practices improve the social-emotional outcomes for young children with, or at risk for, delays or disabilities and creates FREE products and resources to help decision makers, caregivers, and service providers apply these best practices in the work they do every day. Most of these free products are available right on their website for you to view, download and use.
