Early Years F-Words Webinar Series 

CanChild has partnered with Child Development Resource Connection Peel (CDRCP) to create a series of six webinars on each of the 'F-words'. This first webinar is an introduction to the series, which introduces people to the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health - usually called 'the ICF' - and some "F-words" ideas that bring the ICF to life for kids with disabilities and their families. Six videos will follow, to illustrate how and why each 'F-word' (Function, Family, Fun, Friendships, Fitness and Future) is so important to kids with impairments, their families, and people who work with them to promote their development.
