Learning from each other in the field of Early Childhood Intervention.

Each country finds itself at a different phase of development when it comes to Early Childhood Intervention. It is important that the ECI community learns from each other, and supports one another.
The Early Intervention Institute in St Petersburg, Russia, is keen to develop its links in the international ECI Community.

This includes a piece I have written on the education of children born prematurely.

The newsletter can be found here.
