Train-the-Trainer: Early identification of developmental delays and disabilities

The Georgia Division of Children and Family Services is launching a training initiative for the purpose of educating caregivers on the early identification of developmental delays and disabilities in children 0-5 years. DFCS is offering 10 Train-the-Trainer events in the following cities: Cumming, Rome, Lawrenceville, Savannah, Macon, Columbus, Albany, Valdosta, Carrolton and College Park. This training opportunity was established in partnership with the Department of Public Health.

Participants in Train-the-Trainer will learn how to present the established curriculum and use related tools and materials such as video, Milestone Moments booklets, tracker and participant resource guides. Participants will also receive a training kit with all materials in order to replicate the training to families. The goal of this project is to have a training curriculum that will improve overall service provision for children in this age group. The training is available to lead Resource Development staff or designated RD staff and CPA partners. The maximum class size is limited to 20 participants per class; 2 spaces will be reserved for each RD team and 2 spaces will be reserved for each CPA. The time of each event is 10:00am-3:00pm.
