For Your Information
Take a Minute
Assessments of 9-month-old children suggest those who hear baby talk -- words such as "bunny" or "choo-choo" -- more frequently are faster at picking up new words between 9 and 21 months. Researches say this suggests some types of baby talk words can help infants develop their vocabulary more quickly.
Meet Me
Check out this newspaper insert dedicated to the inclusion of people with developmental disabilities published recently in the Sacramento News & Review and local newspapers throughout Sacramento, Yolo, Placer, Nevada, Sutter, Colusa and El Dorado counties.
Study Participants Sought
Volunteers are being recruited to participate in a research study evaluating a website customized for parents of children with ADHD and adults with ADHD.
This is My Library
Every Sacramento Library branch has a "This is My Library" social story book specific to that branch. Introduce your family to an individual library branch through photos so they will know what to expect on their first visit.  Learn More
