CDC Public Awareness Campaign Focuses on Child Development

7/18/2007:   The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have launched a public awareness campaign, "Learn the Signs. Act Early." The campaign aims to help child care providers and health care professionals educate parents about child development. All materials are free and available online in both English and Spanish.

Campaign materials include fact sheets, posters, and fliers about the early warning signs of autism and other developmental disorders, and they encourage developmental screening and intervention. The materials can be used for
  • professional development training sessions,
  • distribution at conferences,
  • e-cards and other information to distribute to member listservs,
  • website content, and
  • articles about the campaign for publications and newsletters.
