An Early Childhood Behavioral Specialist (ECBS) works alongside parents, caregivers, and teachers to identify a set of goals for a child and help them flourish. Implementing early interventions at a young age can help a child with their learning and social processes.
For example, a withdrawn 3-year-old beginning preschool may face a number of social and educational challenges.
An ECBS can work with children facing behavioral and educational challenges to become a mentor and encourage positive behavior.
A profound, lifelong advantage for your child
At the iCan Dream Center, we want all children to have the benefit of growing from a foundation of early learning.
Early screenings can inform a team of specialists about the next steps for behavioral and academic support planning for your child. All aspects of your child and his or her life are considered during this time, including challenges he or she may face in their environment or at home.
Research suggests that early childhood education produces a profound, lifelong advantage. Children who enter intensive preschool programs are less likely to be arrested, more likely to graduate and less likely to struggle with substance abuse as adults. They are even more likely to eventually attend and graduate college. (Small Investment in Children, 2015).
We would love to provide your child with a strong foundation on which they can grow mentally, emotionally, and socially. Click here to learn more about our Little Dreamers Academy.
