Adapted Anticipatory Guidance for Infants and Toddlers

June 15, 2015 | 1-2 p.m. Eastern

Children experiencing homelessness are significantly more likely to have acute and chronic illnesses and have much higher rates of emotional and behavior problems and developmental delays than housed children. In this webinar we will discuss strategies from a forthcoming Council resource, Adapted Anticipatory Guidance for Infants and Toddlers Experiencing Homelessness, which adapts standard guidelines for the condition of homelessness and aims to improve social, development, and health outcomes for homeless children.
