Length: 1 hour

  • What do librarians need to know about the developmental processes of very young children?
  • How can we interact with family members in a supportive and constructive manner when these processes enter our settings?

This webinar will orient participants to the Touchpoints approach to child development. The discussion will include identifying the themes of development that operate when parents of infants, toddlers and preschoolers bring their children to libraries. We will also examine how libraries can respond to families by focusing on parent-child relationships, and supporting parental mastery.
