This resource was created for educators and families to help promote the well-being of young children in response to uncertainty and potential unrest. Sasha Kopp, our Community Early Childhood and Family Engagement Consultant had a conversation with Leah C. Marks, PhD, NCSP, a school psychologist and licensed clinical psychologist, to discuss how parents and educators can best support young children at this time.
