Early Detection of Developmental Delays and Disabilities

The Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) is leading a training initiative for the purpose of educating state personnel and foster parents on the early signs of developmental delay and disability in children 0-5 yrs.

Foster parents and DFCS staff will be trained in separate sessions, and the curriculum was tailored to meet the information needs of each group.

The curriculum was produced in collaboration with the Department of Public Health (DPH), Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD), DFCS, foster care families and relevant community partners.

Phase 1 of the trainings will occur on May 13- June 30, 2016, in Albany, Augusta, Gwinnett, Cobb, Clayton, Fulton and Dekalb with a statewide roll-out in summer of 2016.

The training sites and registration information is listed on the flyer. This training is 4 hours and you will be given credit for hours attended. Please make sure you sign in and out. This information will be sent to your Regional RD lead.  Childcare is not provided, so please make the necessary arrangements.
