You are in the right place to learn more about parenting and child development!
- The FamilySPEAK.org website has a special video library for parents/families based on the Early Learning and Development Guidelines. These age specific videos are short and offer you an easy way to learn about developmental milestones. Each child’s development is different – discussing any concerns you may have with your child’s pediatrician will help you be their best advocate. To learn more, click HERE.
When parenting classes begin to meet again, please visit our calendar page for information.
