The Champions for Young Children Symposium

August 3, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm


ICS is proud to be a sponsor of the 2018 Champions for Young Children Symposium. This year’s theme is Understanding Trauma and Building Resilience. The Symposium aims to:

  • To increase awareness of the effect of trauma in young children.
  • To provide symposium participants with evidence-based strategies to respond to trauma and build resilience in young children.
  • To provide a platform for practitioners from multiple early childhood sectors to network and share ideas.

We are pleased to share that ICS Senior Fellow Janice Gruendel will be a keynote speaker at the event, joined by Charlene Russell-Tucker, Chief Operating Officer for the Connecticut State Department of Education. J
