FREE but registration is required
Led by Maria Blaeuer, Director of Programs and Outreach at Advocates for Justice and Education (AJE), DC’s federally designated Parent Training and Information Center

This workshop is for DC families of infants, toddlers and preschoolers who are concerned about their child’s development or who suspect that their child may benefit from early intervention services. We will discuss when and how to reach out to DC’s Strong Start or Early Stages programs; what to expect when you contact them and who is eligible for services; what to do if you don’t agree with the approach/intervention offered by them; and where to find additional resources.
