ITTI Care Project
The Infant-Toddler Trauma-Informed Care (ITTI Care) Project leverages the existing early childhood education workforce support system to expand and strengthen trauma-informed knowledge and practice within the communities they serve. Its goal is to build a professional development framework for the infant/toddler child care workforce across the state of North Carolina to promote trauma-informed child care. Project staff will train and support classroom coaches to become experts in trauma-informed child care. These ITTI Care-trained coaches will train and coach infant/toddler teachers and child care administrators to: 1) Promote understanding of the impacts of stress and trauma on infants and toddlers, 2) Develop infant/toddler teacher skills to form supportive, resilience-building relationships and environments, and 3) Identify strategies to support child care provider health and well-being.
