Meeting the Distinctive Needs of Newcomer Children in Childminding Settings

Here is the second of four workshops from the 2011 Professional Development Conference for LINC Childminders. 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.
