Head Bumps Matter, Protecting Young Brains - Self Learning Module (2 hours)

This media-rich, online module discusses how to reduce the risk of head injuries, how to recognize and respond to the signs and symptoms of a head injury, and what may be involved to accommodate a child in group care who has sustained a brain injury. To view the module online, you will need a broadband Internet connection (cable, DSL or FIOS).  To open the interactive module, click Head Bumps here.  It may take several minutes to load before playing.  Pennsylvania early learning practitioners who do not have a broadband connection or have difficulty using the module with their Internet connection may contact ECELS to request the CD version. To use the CD version of the module, you will need to have recent updates of the Adobe Reader (version 9.1 or better) and Adobe Flash Player (version 10.1 or better).
