Referring children and families in need of more intensive mental health services to appropriate support programs. A three-year evaluation of MD’s ECMHC Project conducted through a partnership between MSDE, University of MD School of Medicine, CKD Communications, LLC., and Georgetown University Center for Child and Human Development found: ECMHC improves the effectiveness of ECE Providers’ approaches to promoting a classroom climate conducive to positive behavior and social emotional functioning. ECMHC interventions improve the overall level of social functioning for children and reduce the level of challenging behaviors in the classroom. 88% of all the children served remained in their current care setting or moved to a more appropriate setting. Over the years, the need for early childhood mental health services has been on the rise. The ECMH Consultation Project works to increase public awareness of the importance of a child’s social/emotional development, particularly as it relates to school readiness. Regional project sites maintain telephone help lines, distribute publications and resources, and partner with stakeholder agencies to inform child care providers and families about the availability and benefits of early childhood mental health services.

Services include: Observation and assessment of children and the child care environment using research-based tools; Partnering with child care providers to deliver

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
