Thank you for helping us recognize the essential role that caregivers play in the healthy development of babies right from the start!

Thank you for joining ACNJ and our partners NJ-AIMH, MSU CAECMH, C.I.T.E., NJAEYC, SPAN, and NJ Breastfeeding Coalition for #CelebrateBabies2020, a whole week where we recognized the importance of infant mental health and the vital role caregivers play in all aspects of a child’s early development.

Find a list of resources and a recording of the webinar “Celebrate Babies by Embracing the Essential Role of the Caregiver” with Dr. Gerard Costa, Director of the Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health at Montclair State University, as he discussed the science behind how the caregiver aids in all aspects of infant and toddler development, health and well-being.
