Family Infant Toddler Studies

Shadow family

The goal of this project is to create a workforce trained in family infant toddler competencies, capable of service to young children and their families through a variety of home visiting and family support initiatives.

An advisory board of members from around the state developed a set of FIT BA Studies courses that will be offered online.

Courses include:

  • Caregiving for Infants and Toddlers
  • Developmental Research and Implications for Infants and Toddlers
  • The FIT Professional and Families and Communities
  • Infant and Toddler Assessment and Evaluation
  • Infant and Toddler Public Policy and Advocacy
  • Reflective Practice Seminar

Eastern New Mexico University was instrumental in creating and piloting the courses, and they will be the first to offer the new set of courses, hopefully in Spring 2012.

The Family Infant Toddler Studies Online Courses were developed to address the need for well trained home visitors working with families of young children, 0-3 years of age, across a range of home visiting programs including Early Intervention (FIT), Early Head Start, and New Mexico's Home Visiting Initiative. These courses, offered for AA level credit, are being piloted Fall 2010 and will be available to students statewide.
