This Center on the Social Emotional Foundations of Early Learning (CSEFEL) module focuses on promoting the social and emotional development of infants and toddlers through the use of parent child groups. The model that the module is based on is called Parents Interacting with Infants (PIWI), but includes infants and toddlers. PIWI has been successfully used in community based and early intervention programs with a diverse range of parents and children. While the primary focus of the module is on parent child groups, it also discusses how the model applies to home visiting.
This online tool supports home visiting staff and those who support them by presenting regulations, strategies, publications, and resources in a way that’s interactive, flexible, and adaptable to people’s needs. It offers the readerthe opportunity to read, review, rate, save, and organize material that’s engaging, supports understanding, and ultimately contributes to their expertise as home visitors and home visiting supervisors. It has been developed by the Early Head Start National Resource Center, and includes numerous resources produced by other national centers.
