Baby Teeth are Important! The Brush Oral Health Curriculum ***SUTQ-Approved***

Dental decay in young children continues to increase. From missed school, to an inability to pay attention because of pain and lack of sleep, dental decay can prevent a child from succeeding in school and reaching their full potential. Learn about the new Brush curriculum and how you can teach children to care for their teeth and keep their mouth and body healthy. Brush offers fun, multidisciplinary weekly lessons that meet a number of content standards. Brush will get children excited about their teeth and will teach them just how important their teeth are to their overall health, to doing well in school, to making friends and to feeling good about themselves!

Adapting Your Environment for Children with Asthma ***SUTQ-Approved***

Likely you have, or will have, a child in your care who has asthma. Do you know how to help that child avoid having asthma episodes, and what to do if an episode occurs? This workshop gives you the information and resources you need to provide excellent care for a child with asthma. After attending this session, over 50% of people who care for children with asthma report seeing an improvement in the child’s symptoms. See what a difference you can make!
