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. Following on from the excellent ISEI Conference they hosted in 2013, they have produced a newsletter, containing articles that can be read in Russian or English. This includes a piece I have written on the education of children born prematurely.
The newsletter can be found here.
This conference, a joint congress of the Annual Conference of the European Association on Early Childhood Intervention (EURLYAID) and the 2nd National Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Intervention Conference of the Turkish Association on Early Childhood Intervention invites you to participate in:
