Connection vs. Perfection

Date(s) - Monday, November 07, 2022
6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Join us for a professional development event designed to help you support children birth to three years old who have special needs. This event is funded by the Maryland State Department of Education. Thanks to this funding, the registration fee for this event is only $5.

It only takes 30% of attunement with an infant or toddler to form a secure attachment. The other 70% is where mistakes or challenges within a relationship may occur. Infants and toddlers crave authenticity within their relationships just like we do, and with authenticity comes “oops”. In this training participants, will explore how our “oops” can breed a more connected relationship specifically with infants and toddlers with special needs and those whose culture is different from our own. This session will focus on examining how choosing connection over perfection can be the answer to supporting strong relationships with ALL of our youngest learners.
