Valid and reliable social-emotional screening A strong social-emotional foundation is the key to a child’s health, well-being, and ability to learn in school. But for many children, social-emotional challenges may go unrecognized before they start kindergarten.

Your child is learning what they can do and are more confident in their abilities. They are proud of their big kid skills. Your child also wants control. They want to do things their way and on their timeline. It can be frustrating when your child tells you “no” or wants to do things “by myself.” The trick is to give your child a little control while still being in control yourself. For example, always offer two acceptable choices when requesting something of your child: “Do you want to put on your red shirt or your blue shirt?” This small choice provides a little bit of control that feels good to your independent toddler.

How Are You Feeling?

Entering kindergarten is a big change for you and your child. It is an exciting time, and it also might be a little scary for you both. You can help by preparing yourself and your child for this big step well ahead of time. Provide opportunities for your child to practice being away from you and being more independent with self-help skills such as eating and dressing. Visit the school and find out what to expect. These steps will increase your child’s confidence and make both of you feel more prepared for this big change!

In The Year Before Kindergarten

Your toddler is taking on more challenges, and these challenges can trigger big feelings. It doesn’t take much for your child to become discouraged and give up on a task that is hard or to say, “You do it.” Encourage and support your child: “Keep on trying. You can do it.” Stay close and, if needed, help your child before they do give up. Let your toddler know you have confidence in their abilities. When your child learns something new, let them know how proud you are.

Find a quiet, comfortable place to feed your baby. Hold your baby close and look into their eyes. While feeding, watch your baby closely and see what helps them calm and focus.

Your baby doesn’t like to be far from you.



Your Toddler’s Social-Emotional Development

Take your baby out for short walks. Let your baby see the sky and trees, listen to the birds, and feel the wind. If you can carry your baby, they can feel the warmth of your body and hear your heartbeat, and they will feel safe and secure. Your baby may cry less and calm more easily when they are physically close to you. Talk to your baby about what you can see, hear, or feel. This is how your baby learns the meaning of words.

Activities for 0 to 3 Months

Rock-a-Bye Baby

Topic-specific handouts

• Teach your child how to do things independently. This will help your child start to build autonomy— the ability to do things separately from you.

Social-emotional development is your child’s ability to • Experience, express, and manage emotions

Your child is learning to express and control their big feelings. This is a very hard thing to do! If your child is upset, help them calm down before trying to talk to them. Hold them lovingly in your arms and breathe together. “You’re okay sweetie. Mommy’s here.” Talk about and practice calming ideas at times when your child is not upset. Ideas include deep breathing, using words to talk about feelings, taking a break, or switching to a new activity.

• Let your child dress without your help. Teach your child how to open food containers. Teach them all the steps of using the bathroom alone. Your child’s self-confidence will grow as they learn how to do things independently. Be sure to praise your child’s growing independence: “You dressed all by yourself this morning!” • Encourage your child to practice writing their first name. Teach them their address and telephone number.

• Develop positive relationships with you and others • Explore their environment with curiosity and confidence Social-emotional skills

Calm First, Talk Later

Your baby is never too young to listen to a story or look at pictures in a book. Your baby will feel warm, safe, and calm in your arms. Reading books is an activity you and your baby can do every day as a routine, to help you get close and connect. Your baby listens to the tone of your voice and hears the words you are saying. At this age, your baby focuses best on simple black-andwhite pictures or big, brightly colored pictures.

• Set up times for your child to play with other children—including future classmates, if possible. Knowing how to play and get along with peers is a big part of kindergarten. Having a few friends in class will help your child feel more comfortable.

What Is Social-Emotional Development?

• Limit television and other screen time to 1 to 2 hours a day. Your child will need to be able to stay calm and focus on real-world activities or a teacher for periods of time. • Encourage your child to stick with activities for longer periods of time. This helps your child build self-regulation skills—the ability to monitor and control their own behavior. • Take your child with you out into the world—to the library, grocery store, and other places. This will help your child feel more secure exploring new places.

• Develop through positive and loving interactions with you and others

• Create bedtime and wake-up routines over the summer before kindergarten starts. Help your child prepare for the school schedule.

• Are key to your child’s success in school and in life

• Visit your local school and your child’s classroom. Meet the teacher. Find the bathroom! This will help build your child’s confidence.

Exploring the World Give your toddler opportunities to explore new activities and places. Take your child to a park, the library, or other fun places. New places may be scary for your child at first. Keep your child close and let them watch before joining in activities. Show your child how to greet new people, such as a clerk at a store. It is okay if your child is shy at first. When your child is ready, they will let you know.

THE IDEAL FOLLOW-UP TO Social-Emotional Assessment / Evaluation Measure (SEAM™) Research Edition By Jane Squires, Ph.D., Diane Bricker, Ph.D., Misti Waddell, M.S., Kristin Funk, M.A., LCSW, Jantina Clifford, Ph.D., & Robert Hoselton


Includes English & Spanish forms!

When results from a screener like ASQ:SE-2 say a child needs more support, your next step is SEAM™, a discovery and planning tool for helping young children at risk for social-emotional challenges. For use with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, the SEAM assessment reveals detailed qualitative information on children’s social-emotional competence—and identifies caregivers’ strengths and areas of need.


Work on family outcomes as well as child outcomes

Start sensitive but important talks with parents

Educate families about social-emotional milestones

Develop functional goals for the child

SEAM IS A TWO-PART ASSESSMENT: Get customized training through Brookes On Location! Our experts can provide training seminars that show your staff how to make the most of SEAM and use it in tandem with the ASQ family of products. We now offer an introductory seminar and trainings on using SEAM with ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2.

SEAM Tool. SEAM includes three intervals with different developmental ranges: Infant (2–18 months), Toddler (18–36 months), and Preschool (36–66 months). Each interval assesses 10 child benchmarks critical to social-emotional competence, including empathy, adaptive skills, self-image, and healthy interactions with others.

SEAM Family Profile. The Family Profile assesses parent/caregiver strengths and helps identify areas in which they need more supports to foster their child’s social-emotional skills. Like SEAM, the Family Profile assessment includes three intervals—Infant, Toddler, and Preschool. Each interval measures four benchmarks: responding to needs, providing activities and play, providing predictable routines and an appropriate environment, and ensuring home safety.

ENSURE REAL PROGRESS WITH Assessment, Evaluation, and Programming System (AEPS®) for Infants and Children Second Edition By Diane Bricker, Ph.D., Betty Capt, Ph.D., OTR, JJ Johnson, Ph.D., Kristie Pretti-Frontczak, Ph.D., Kristine Slentz, Ph.D., Elizabeth Straka, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, & Misti Waddell, M.S.


All across the country, programs like yours choose AEPS® for linked assessment, intervention, and programming for kids with disabilities and kids at risk. Backed by decades of research, AEPS is the system that: • Works for children. Less sensitive assessments can miss the smallest increments of progress. AEPS picks them up, so it’s easier to identify kids at risk for delays and assess the progress of children with disabilities. • Works for families. With AEPS, families can share priorities and concerns on the Family Report—information you can use to inform interventions. Families also love how AEPS gives them a clear picture of their child’s progress toward goals.

Get customized training through Brookes On Location! Prepare your staff to make the most of AEPS with a training seminar! You can choose an introductory or advanced seminar, and select from dozens of critical topics our experts can cover, including: 3 Administering and scoring AEPS 3 Targeting quality goals and objectives from AEPS results 3 Monitoring child progress using AEPS 3 Linking AEPS assessment with intervention 3 Preparing and involving families 3 Individualizing instruction for young children using the AEPS curriculum

• Works for you. AEPS collects only the data you need—and clearly shows you what to do next. And with the web-based management system, AEPSi™, you’ll communicate more consistently with team members, run reports in seconds, and assess multiple children at once with group assessment activities.

PLAY-BASED ASSESSMENT & INTERVENTION The Transdisciplinary Play-Based System


By Toni Linder, Ed.D. Choose TPBA2 and TPBI2, and you’ll see how much better assessment and intervention can be when they’re based on what children naturally love: play! Aligned with DEC and NAEYC guidelines, this bestselling, highly effective system engages and relaxes kids with child-directed play activities during assessment, so they’re motivated to show what they can do. Then it explicitly links assessment results with customized play-based interventions embedded in daily home and school routines. The interventions keep parents involved, build on the child’s natural interests, and help them generalize their new skills, so families see sustained progress across all settings.

Better assessments through the power of play. During a fun and

naturalistic play session, professionals assess development in 4 key areas while the child plays with family members and a team play facilitator. Because children stay relaxed and engaged, focusing on what they can do instead of what they can’t, TPBA2 elicits more meaningful and accurate results than many traditional assessment strategies.


Positive, playful interventions that improve real-world skills. After

the play session results are reviewed, it’s easy to link TPBA2’s assessment data to individualized, play-based intervention activities. TPBI2 shows you how to partner with parents to tailor a unique program of activities that work with their child’s strengths, interests, and learning processes. Interventions fit right into the family’s daily routines.

Effective Early Intervention The Developmental Systems Approach By Michael J. Guralnick, Ph.D.

After decades of rapid evolution and groundbreaking research, the field of early intervention can be understood within a common framework: the Developmental Systems Approach (DSA). Created by highly influential leader Michael Guralnick, this evidencebased, relationship-oriented, family-centered framework focuses on strengthening the quality of key family patterns of interaction that influence a child’s development. Starting with a clear explanation of the foundations of early intervention, Guralnick applies the lens of the DSA to four vulnerable populations: children at risk due to biological factors, children at environmental risk, children with developmental delays, and children with autism spectrum disorder. Readers will discover how the DSA framework can guide the development of effective services and supports for diverse young children and families. $89.95 | Stock #: 21106-52889 | 2019 | 384 pages | 7 x 10 | hardcover | ISBN 978-1-68125-288-9

Measure of Engagement, Independence, and Social Relationships (MEISR™) Research Edition By R. A. McWilliam, Ph.D., & Naomi Younggren, Ph.D. Young children grow and learn when they participate fully in everyday routines and activities. Assess this critical dimension of child development with the MEISR™, an easy-to-use tool for creating a snapshot of the functional behaviors of children from birth to 3 years of age. A rich learning opportunity for both families and professionals—and an ideal starting point for talking to parents about their child’s functioning—the MEISR helps build an understanding of a child’s engagement, independence, and social relationships within the context of common family routines. Completed by caregivers and easy to use with them during home visits, the MEISR helps paint a picture of the child’s functional abilities and highlights future learning opportunities. With results of the MEISR, you can:


• Start important conversations with families about their child’s participation in everyday activities • Support child engagement—an important prerequisite to learning • Empower families to enhance natural learning opportunities • Help families choose functional skills to address within the IFSP • Help your team determine Child Outcome Summary (COS) ratings • Develop individualized intervention priorities HOW IT WORKS:

Watch this free 45-minute webinar to understand the relationship between the MEISR and the Routines-Based Interview (RBI), learn about the unique features of MEISR, master administration and scoring basics, and more! VIEW THE RECORDING:

The MEISR assesses a child’s functioning within 14 everyday routines, including waking up, mealtime, play, and bath time. With the guidance of an early intervention professional, parents or caregivers complete the MEISR in just 45 minutes, scoring each item with a 1 (child does not yet do this), a 2 (child does this sometimes) or a 3 (child does this often or has progressed beyond this). When the MEISR is complete, it provides a snapshot of the child’s functioning relative to age expectations and the demands of daily routines. Based on scoring of the MEISR, families and professionals work together to identify what priorities to include in the IFSP. The MEISR can also be used to monitor the child’s progress at 6-month intervals, adjusting goals as needed. WHAT TO ORDER

A Comprehensive Guide to Evidence-Based Instruction

By Shauna L. Tominey, Ph.D., & Elisabeth C. O’Bryon, Ph.D.

Edited by Elsa Cárdenas-Hagan, Ed.D., CCC-SLP, CDT, CALT, QI

The number of dual language learners in early childhood classrooms is expanding every year—and teachers often feel underprepared to bridge language barriers and effectively meet these students’ learning needs. Help is here in this urgently needed book, a toolbox of 45 practical, developmentally appropriate strategies for teaching dual language learners (both Spanish speakers and children who speak other languages).

Millions of English learners attend U.S. public schools— and yet only a small fraction of education professionals are certified to work with them. Fill that gap in education with this comprehensive text, an evidence-based guide to providing English learners in Pre-K–Grade 6 with explicit, systematic instruction on the key components of language and literacy. For each component, you’ll get a dedicated chapter with research-based insights on how to teach English learners, guidance on making connections across languages when teaching that component, and ready-to-use principles and strategies for instruction. Learning objectives, study questions, and extended application activities help you grow your knowledge and apply it in classrooms.


• Set up and organize your learning environment to support dual language learners • Create a diverse classroom community where children’s challenges and needs are anticipated • Use culturally responsive classroom management practices that engage diverse learners • Strengthen social-emotional learning for dual language learners • Promote early academic skills for children of all cultural backgrounds • Partner with families and engage them in children’s learning PRACTICAL MATERIALS: Classroom
