Cognitive sensitivity (CS) refers to an educator’s ability to respond to a child’s interactions and is positively related to children’s language and executive functioning. The Early Childhood Cognitive Sensitivity Training Study is a professional development program aimed at enhancing educator-child interactions, a key aspect of early education and care quality. This session outlines key concepts and strategies used to enhance educator CS, and in turn, overall quality in the classroom.

The following powerpoint is our group training for the intervention component of the study. This workshop focuses on  a theoretical explanation of the importance of cognitive sensitivity to the development of young children and the preliminary steps on training these skills in practice.
