About Just Being Kids
Just Being Kids is a collection of six video clips that illustrate recommended practices in early intervention. Developed by The ENRICH Team at JFK Partners in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Education and originally published in 2001, the six stories feature early interventionists working collaboratively with families to achieve meaningful outcomes for their children in everyday routines, activities, and places. In each story, the family members and providers offer poignant reflections on their experiences.
The six stories from Just Being Kids can be downloaded for free for use in professional development activities according to the limitations described at the top of this page. In addition, Just Being Kids is available on DVD from Western Media Products: http://media-products.com/catalog/just-being-kids-version-p-33.html
