Dads Matter!

In modern families, dads are more involved with young children than ever before. This two-part webinar series helps early intervention providers to understand modern fatherhood including the unique influences dads have on their young children’s development. The second session offers effective strategies for engaging dads in routines-based intervention. Participants are encouraged to share their own experiences and current tricky situations working with dads for the opportunity to receive reflective feedback from the group.
