Infant Toddler Development Training
Module 6, Lesson 2

Activity #1

Read the required article Facts and Myths about Immunizations.

What immunizations provide long-term immunity, perhaps for a lifetime, and what immunizations will need to be repeated in a few years? What did you learn?

Activity #2

Read the required article Teething Tots. If you have difficulty locating it, go to Kids Health Look in the section on general health on teething tots.

Consider some suggestions the ITDS can give to parents about good dental health for infants and toddlers.

Activity #3

Read Common Diagnoses in the NICU If you have difficulty locating it, go to Kids Health Look in the section on "Caring for a Seriously or Chronically Ill Child".

The ITDS may often read medical reports with the team for infants who have been in the NICU. Therefore, it is helpful to become familiar with the terms, including the acronyms that appear in such reports. It is important that the jargon be understood and that there is a common basis of understanding. Many of the diagnoses are referred to by acronyms when communicating with the nurses and doctors on your team. After reading the article, spell out what the acronym stands for and give a definition of the following:

  • NEC
  • PDA
  • TTN
  • BPD.
