First 5s are fundamental partners in the education advocacy of young children in foster care. Approximately half of the children in foster care are ages 0-5 and understanding the importance of supporting protective factors in the early years of development will have a positive impact over a child’s life course. Core to the vision of the network of First 5s is to develop programs, supports and structures to create healing centered, trauma informed and culturally responsive systems. Children in foster care have been exposed to many Adverse Childhood Experiences that can impact brain development in the early years. Learn how to partner with First 5s to buffer against the long-term impact of this trauma.
Our speaker for this webinar will be: Jackie Wong, Executive Director, First 5 CA. This webinar will be recorded and available on California CASAs E-Learning Center.
