Learn the Signs.  Act Early.

The other day I received an email about the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Learn the Signs. Act Early program. So I wanted to take a moment to share this important information from CDC with parents, child care providers, and other early childhood professionals.

Have a Great Week!
