About Keys to Caregiving

When we learn to read and respond to messages from children and infants – whether they are

tired, hungry, excited, happy or confused, it makes an enormous difference to our interactions

with them. the first step in framing our interaction is recognising signs of engagement and

disengagement. When practitioners share these concepts with parents, those parents are then

empowered in their relationship with their baby and experience richer and more positive

interactions.

Keys to caregiving is a video based learning program from ncAst-AVenUW at the University of

Washington school of nursing and centre for Human development and disability. this

interactive one day workshop incorporates video review and skills practice. Participants will be

encouraged to reflect on how the concepts in Keys to caregiving align with their current practice

and to consider potential applications.

Keys to caregiving:

• Builds confidence and competence in parents /

caregivers care of their infrants

• increases caregivers knowledge of infants abilities

• Helps identify strengths and challenges in parents /

caregivers abilities
