About the Program

This program of specialization is aimed at early childhood educators who already have an AEC or a DEC in Early Childhood Education and are employed in this field (daycares, early childhood centers, garderies). This training program allows graduates to be able to observe, detect and develop techniques and skills that meet the specific needs of children in child care to promote their inclusion.

These educators will be able to analyze and evaluate the problems of the child (0-12 years) in difficulty with his family and his environment, develop an appropriate intervention plan and carry out individual or group interventions or refer the client to professional services in the health network. These activities are based on everyday situations to improve communication and each dimension of the life of the child in difficulty (emotional, social, cognitive, verbal, psychomotor, moral, etc.)
