Watch as the MFLN FD Early Intervention team discusses a resource from their recent webinar on August 6, 2015. You can access the webinar recording and additional resources, here.
“Hi everyone my name is Kimberly Hile and I am with the Family Development Early Intervention team and I was also one of the presenters for last week’s webinar that we put on, Promoting Positive Relationships.
So one of the conversations that we had during the webinar was based on this resource that’s on the additional resource list that we shared with you, What Grown-Ups Understand About Child Development. And what came out of this was that a lot of adults don’t understand that young children as young as four months can demonstrate some symptoms of depression. So we talked about that and had a great question from one of our participants about what some of those symptoms might look like, how might a child display that they are suffering from depression.
So we talked about how some of those might be exhibiting withdrawal symptoms, so perhaps not wanting to be as interactive with their caregiver as they once were. Perhaps there could be some disruptions with eating or with sleeping. So perhaps a child who was sleeping through the night is now up frequently. Some things like that. We just wanted to share that a little bit and again point back to this resource. It’s got some really good information that I think you would like to pick through.
For those of you who did participate in the webinar last week we want to say thank you again. For those of you that weren’t able to on that date, the recording is up on the website so please feel free to go and watch that. And depending on what state you live in you might even be able to get some credit for that for your credentialing or your licensure.
So again we want to thank you for your support. If you have any questions that you would like us to cover, please feel free to go to the website, where there’s a place you can type those in and we’ll respond as we can. Also, don’t forget to check out our Facebook site, our Twitter site, there are lots of other blogs and resources so we really want to make sure we’re getting you the information that you need. Thanks again we really appreciate your support.”
