Care for Child Development

Care for Child Development (CCD) is an evidence-based approach designed to foster stimulation of young children by guiding their parents and caregivers on how to engage in play and communication activities that promote motor, cognitive-language and social-emotional skills. It also strengthens responsive caregiving skills by coaching parents and caregivers during a play interaction with their child to observe, interpret and appropriately respond to their child’s signals.
