Inclusive Intervention in Early Childhood CareAEC JNC.1T
ACS – SPECIALIZATION
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
This Inclusive Intervention in Early Childhood Care AEC program certifies students as a behavioural specialist to work with children with special needs. This is a specialization program aimed at early childhood educators who have already obtained an ACS or a DCS certificate 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 for promoting inclusion that meet the specific needs of children in their care.
Students will be able to analyze and evaluate the problems of children aged 0-12 years old that are experiencing difficulty with family and their home environment. The educator will then develop an appropriate intervention plan and carry-out individual or group interventions, or they may refer the client to professional service within the health network. These activities are based on everyday situations with the goal of improving communication as well as each dimension of the life of the child in a difficult situation (emotional, social, cognitive, verbal, psychomotor, moral, etc.)
