CEECD / SKC-ECD - WHAT'S NEW?

TWO NEWLY UPDATED TOPICS IN THE ENCYCLOPEDIA
HOME VISITING PROGRAMS & AUTISM
    
Although home visiting programs differ from each other in terms of targeted population (children with disabilities, teen mothers, at-risk families), providers (professionals, paraprofessionals, volunteers), activities and schedules, they all share the same objective, which is to support children’s healthy growth and development. More specifically, the main goals of most home visiting programs are to improve parents’ child-rearing beliefs, knowledge and ability to provide a positive environment for their children.

First defined narrowly as a disorder involving lack of affective contact, preservation of routine, fascination with objects and deficits in language communication, autism has now been recognized as a complex syndrome that varies enormously in its severity and its manifestations. The care of autistic children is highly demanding of parents and community resources, and even if many affected children will grow up to live fulfilling lives, many others will experience the lifelong negative impact of important medical, educational and social difficulties.
