April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. During Child Abuse Prevention month, you will see banners, lawn signs and social media posts designed to raise awareness of the impacts of abuse and neglect on the children of our community. Child abuse occurs at every socioeconomic level, across ethnic and cultural lines, within all religions, and at all levels of education. Thankfully, we know that strong families and supported parents help to prevent child abuse and neglect.  In support, the Child Abuse Prevention Council invites you to WEAR BLUE on Friday April 8, 2016! On this day, individuals and organizations across California stand together to make a visible commitment to prevent child abuse and support strong families. #WearBlue4Kids

Our Focus

The Child Abuse Prevention Council is a community council whose primary purpose is to coordinate the community’s efforts to prevent and respond to child abuse and neglect. It is comprised of 15 members of the community, each appointed by the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors. The Council acts as an independent entity and is coordinated through a contract between the El Dorado County Department of Human Services and the El Dorado County Office of Education. The Child Abuse Prevention Council functions include:
· Acts as the Children’s Trust Fund Commission

· Provides a forum for interagency communication and coordination

· Facilitates the training and education for professionals in the detection and treatment of child abuse and neglect

· Recommends improvements in services to families and victims

· Promotes public awareness of abuse and neglect of children and the resources available for intervention and treatment.

What to look for as your child grows…

Developmental Milestones

Milestones

Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving "bye bye" are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (crawling, walking, etc.).
