Virtual Learning and Telepresence Videos from the Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health

Posted in: College News and Events

The Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health (CAECMH) recently published videos to their YouTube channel addressing virtual learning and telepresence. Dr. Gerry Costa, Director of the center, noted, “One thing is for certain – we have all gotten more familiar with connecting virtually over the past few months! This also means that we’ve been encouraged to become used to lending our ‘telepresence’ to others during virtual teaching, virtual meetings, virtual therapy sessions, virtual coaching, and virtual supervision.”

During the stay-at-home order, CAECMH has been working to provide virtual learning and telepresence in ways that had not been done before. They are proud and excited to share the launch of their YouTube channel, which holds many virtual learning options on various topics of interest. The channel has information delivered in both English and Spanish.

Videos on the channels are designed to provide parents and professionals with helpful information and insights in order to better understand and respond to infants, toddlers, and young children, especially at times of heightened stress and trauma. Each video is under 20 minutes in duration, and focuses on a specific topic in early childhood mental health, development, care, and/or education.
