Social, Emotional & Behavioral Health
Early childhood is a time of major developmental milestones and growth, and the first five years of life play a crucial role in defining later years. It's especially important during this time to encourage positive social-emotional, cognitive, behavioral and mental health. Positive interactions, reading, and play all stimulate healthy development and happy children.
The Center on the Social and Emotional Foundations for Early Learning provides family tools and resources to assist parents with raising happy, healthy children.
Ages & Stages: Social-Emotional is a parent-
completed, child monitoring system for social-emotional behaviors. It is a series of 8 questionnaires, with 3-6 month intervals, for children 6 months to 5 years. By reviewing the results, professionals can identify young children at risk for social or emotional difficulties, identify behaviors of concern to caregivers, and identify need for further assessment. The complete kit comes in one box and includes a User’s Guide –which contains a Social-Emotional Development Continuum & Activities Guide – and reproducible questionnaires.
