Promoting agency and autonomy from birth is important for babies and toddlers. It can empower them to feel seen, heard, and valued, leading to greater engagement and motivation in their own development. Providing a controlled, adult-led environment can stifle their natural curiosity and limit opportunities for self-expression and exploration. Striking a balance between safety and independence is key for promoting growth and development. This presentation gives you the tools necessary to create environments that empower our youngest ones to be their authentic selves and to reach their full potential.

In this riveting presentation, we’ll dive headfirst into the crucial importance of developing strong parent-child relationships. Drawing on Dr. DeLeon’s research and expertise, she shares with you the strategies and tactics that can help you build and strengthen your rapport. Attendees will come away from this presentation with practical insights, real-world examples, resources, and must-read research recommendations that they can immediately try with their children.

Learning Objectives:

1. Attendees will understand the difference between high stress and low stress learning environments

2. Attendees will be able to explain why it is important to focus on building developing connected relationships

3. Attendees will be able to engage in a 3 step process for developing connected relationships

This workshop is presented by Dr. Megan Miller-DeLeon, BCBA-D, IBA, an expert in behavior analysis, early intervention, and autism spectrum disorders.
