Early Detection for Better Outcomes

Evidence-based practice in early detection of developmental challenges for early childhood professionals

As an early care and education provider, you play a critical role in the health and wellbeing of children. You are also very well positioned to help identify children who might need extra help in their development. This FREE, professional development workshop, Evidence-Based Practice in Early Detection of Development Challenges for Early Childhood Professionals, helps you fulfill this role by providing tools and best practices for monitoring the development of children in your care and talking about it with their parents.

 In this 3-hour, workshop, you will learn:

  • Why monitoring children’s development is important
  • Why you have a unique and important role in developmental monitoring
  • How to easily monitor each child’s developmental milestones with Social Attention and Communication Surveillance (SACS-R)
  • How to talk with parents about their child’s development
  • Referral pathways and resources

Gain confidence and resources to monitor young children's development and promote access to early intervention for children who need it.

About the Presenter

Beth Mozolic-Staunton is a paediatric occupational therapist, lecturer and researcher at Southern Cross University. Beth is completing her PhD on the early detection of autism spectrum disorder in early childhood education settings and has presented results of the Right Kids, Right Time, Right Services project at several national and international conferences, local community events and has published a paper in the Australasian Journal of Early Childhood.  The Right Kids, Right Time Right Services Project is a collaboration with Josephine Barbaro, author SACS-R and the Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre at La Trobe University.  The Right Kids, Right Time, Right Services Project has provided tools, training and resources to over 200 early childhood professionals in northern NSW and Gold Coast to monitor the development of young children in childcare. Through the research project, comprehsive developmental assessment was provided for children identified with developmental challenges and referrals made to appropriate early intervention supports. The SACS-R is currently being implemented in Melbourne, Brisbane, China, Poland, Japan, Korea and India. Join us to learn about the results of the Right Kids, Right Time, Right Services project and how to implement evidence-based practice in early detection of developmental challenges in your practice.

This workshop is supported by Social Futures and www.everybodybelongs.org in collaboration with the NSW/ACT Inclusion Agency.
