Recognizing and Responding to Children’s Grief

Are They Watching Screens, Again? Young Children, Media, Play and Learning During COVID

Thursday, April 15, 6:00 p.m.

In this webinar, Dr. Allison Sterling Henward will focus on how families of young children ages 3—8 and youth can make the most of increased reliance on screens during COVID-19. For many families, electronics are helping children and families to maintain a sense of normalcy and connection during stay at home mandates. Here we will explore research on young children and learning with media tools and discuss strategies that allow families and loved ones to use children’s media use to enhance learning and development. Her goal is to support young children and their loved ones as they find the right balance of media learning with other important activities.

Sesame Street in Communities

At www.SSIC.org, you’ll find hundreds of bilingual multi-media tools to help kids and families enrich and expand their knowledge during the early years of birth through six, a critical window for brain development. These resources engage kids and adults in everyday moments and daily routines—from teaching early math and literacy concepts, to encouraging families to eat nutritious foods, to serious topics such as divorce and food insecurity.

In partnership with Early Learning Resource Center Region 1 and IU5, WQLN is offering no-cost virtual provider trainings on how to use these tools!
