Ask the Expert: Learn the Signs. Act Early.

March 24, 2015

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” Program aims to improve early identification of children with autism and other developmental disabilities so children and families can get the services and support they need as early as possible. The health education campaign has a substantial amount of relevant information, tools, and resources for Healthy Start grantees to promote awareness of healthy developmental milestones, understand the importance of tracking each child’s development, and acting early if there are concerns. Please join Camille Smith as she describes the free, research based materials available to grantees through the Learn the Signs. Act Early. Program. Camille will also be available to answer your questions about the program during the webinar.

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Hear about the Learn the Signs. Act Early. Program and how it can support Healthy Start grantees improve services for their mentoring, screening, and early identification of program participants and their families
  • Ask questions and know where to go for more resources about the Learn the Signs. Act Early Campaign
