Special Topics:
Sponsor: Capstone - Head Start
Instructor: Ann Shangraw

Parent Child Centers and Childcare Providers are a key component in prevention and are a valuable resource and support for parents. PCAVT offer free trainings that will help you identify parents and caregivers who may be at risk for shaking a child, and strategies you may pass on that might help to save a child's life. Many of you may know Shaken Baby Syndrome is the term used to describe the group of injuries an infant or small child receives after a violent shaking. Did you know that sadly, this is the most lethal type of child abuse that 25% of these infants and young children that are shaken die, and 50% will suffer lifelong disabilities, and only 25% will lead normal and healthy lives? Fortunately, this is the most preventable form of child abuse. It is our goal to ensure that every Vermonter knows to NEVER, NEVER, NEVER SHAKE A BABY. Trainings include brain Jell-O molds, dolls and a powerful video.
