Strategies for Support

Strategies for Support: Developmental Support Plan Training


Hand in Hand is an evidence-based resource practitioners can use to provide families with an immediate response to developmental concerns. Despite the robust evidence showing the profound role early experiences have on short- and long-term developmental outcomes, many children languish on waiting lists for several months. These wait times further derail development and leave caregivers feeling helpless.

Learning Objectives

Through this training, participants will be introduced to Hand in Hand and learn how to provide families with a Developmental Support Plan (DSP) that is responsive to a child’s developmental needs.

Certificate of Completion

Participants will receive a certificate of completion once they have watched a series of pre-recorded webinars and participated in live coaching sessions.


To register for this training, you must first complete the prerequisite, the FREE Introduction to Infant and Early Mental Health series.
