The Early Learning Series will present a workshop on “Shaken Baby Syndrome” on Wednesday, November 18 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ives Grove Auditorium in Sturtevant.
Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS) is a severe form of brain injury that occurs when a child is forcibly shaken. It is typical for babies to cry, even when you are trying to comfort them. It is also typical for caregivers to get frustrated. Come and learn strategies to aid in the prevention of SBS from occurring. Learn the signs for identification and steps-to-take once SBS identification is made.
The workshop is free for parents, grandparents, and foster parents. For Early Care professionals wishing to receive Registry credit, there is a $10 fee. Advanced registration is required. For more information, please view the flyer Preventing Shaken Baby Syndrome.
