Early Intervention and Childhood Development

Monday, October 27, 2014 at 11:15 AM–12:00 PM PDT
Concurrent Session 1
Session Description

The Early Intervention and Child Development program was designed to meet the needs of child care workers in the state of Oklahoma. The students in this program needed a nontraditional venue with which to complete their baccalaureate degree. They work full time and cannot attend class on a traditional schedule. The university program articulates with community colleges at both the AAS and AA degree level. DHS and the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education have recently awarded scholarships for students to complete the program. This presentation will highlight the development of the program from inception to the increased interest of child care workers. We will also share positive outreach and transfer strategies which led to the Great Plains Region Exceptional Program award.
