Meeting the Distinctive Needs of Newcomer Children in Childminding Settings

In this workshop, Judith A. Colbert, PhD. supports caregivers by exploring the distinctive needs of young newcomer children. She raises issues associated with identifying and meeting the needs of young newcomers, distinguishing between needs that require a better understanding of culture and settlement issues, and needs arising from disabilities or conditions that call for specialized intervention. The workshop also explores the following four areas:  Cultural Practices, Mental and Emotional Health, Families, and Coping and Social Awareness.
