Abusive Head Trauma Prevention Training for Child Care Providers

The Wisconsin Legislature’s 2006 Prevent Violence Against Children Act went into effect in April 2007. The Act required that all child care providers working with children under age 5 years receive training in Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) Prevention and how to manage crying, fussing, or distraught children. Wisconsin’s required Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) Prevention Training for Child Care Providers has been updated and renamed Abusive Head Trauma (AHT) Prevention Training for Child Care Providers.

Shaken Baby Syndrome is one form of Abusive Head Trauma. AHT also includes injury, not only to the brain, but to the skull and spinal cord, which can result from shaking or from inflicting trauma on the head by other means, such as throwing, intentionally dropping, striking, or other forms of impact. Abusive Head Trauma Prevention Training for Child Care Providers addresses the latest information on:
Abusive Head Trauma
The Period of Purple Crying
Strategies and challenges of soothing
Coping with frustration

Developmentally Appropriate Practice Foundations: Why we do what we do

Best practice in early care and education is based on how children develop and learn in the early years. Developmentally Appropriate Practice is about what you do with that knowledge and how you do it. IT is about joyful play and intentional teaching. It is about predictable structure and flexibility. It is about children being part of a community of caring and each child being recognized as an individual. Developmentally Appropriate Practice is complex and requires both/and thinking by early childhood professionals.

Staff Motivation- Helping Teachers Enjoy their work

Directors should be aware of motivational methods that can help “jump start” their staff into enjoying their jobs again.
