A series of handouts recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics that can be used as part of trainings and/or by health professionals during routine interactions with parents and children.
In response to this evolving understanding and a dramatic increase in research on early brain and child development, an expert workgroup of pediatricians and public health professionals revised five modules to provide the latest key information and resources on early brain development, toxic stress, ACEs, parenting and how to be an advocate in your community. In addition, a sixth supplementary module was created with a specific focus on the role of public health professionals.
This grid provides a framework and examples for promoting and supporting Early Brain and Child Development (EBCD) in practice. Intended for busy health professionals, the grid, which was developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics Early Brain and Child Development Leadership Workgroup, distills information from a wide array of resources into a practice-friendly framework for pediatricians.
