Celebrate School Breakfast Week!

March 7 to 11 is National School Breakfast Week. Celebrate by sharing our social media posts encouraging schools to serve breakfast after the bell. That’s the best way to ensure all students start their school day with the nutrition they need to concentrate and learn. New Jersey continues to make good progress in serving breakfast to more students, but we still have a long way to go before we can say that all students are fueling up in the morning.

Checking Up on Infants and Toddlers in Child Welfare

The Check-Up Checklist for Court-Involved Infants and Toddlers developed by Peter Chen at ACNJ with input from members of the Child Well-Being Subcommittee of Essex County Model Court, is now available for use by all people interacting with court-involved infants and toddlers.  Based on national recommendations by Zero to Three and the National Council for Juvenile and Family Court Judges, this checklist ensures that the unique needs of infants and toddlers are being met throughout the child welfare process.

Please feel free to share with colleagues. If you have any questions about the checklist or about early intervention services, please contact Peter Chen at pchen@acnj.org.

Share Training Videos Related to Infants and Toddlers

Visit our website to check out short “On Demand” training videos that cover topics related to infants and toddlers by experts in the field.  View and share these videos that were made possible with a federal court improvemnet grant. 

  • Prenatal Alcohol & Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD)
  • Unintended Consequences: Reducing Trauma for Young Children in the Child Welfare System
  • Developmental Milestones of Infants and Toddlers and Early Intervention Services

You can learn at your leisure because you can start and stop the video as needed. And they can be watched over and over again.

For more information or if you have questions, please contact Mary Coogan at mcoogan@acnj.org.
