This Training Manual was developed to provide up to date information regarding research in SIDS and the best practices for reducing the risk of SIDS in the child care setting. The target audiences for the Training Manual include:
bulletHealth and Safety trainers of front line child care providers
bulletPersons who train the trainers of front line child care providers
bulletIndividuals from Healthy Child Care America (HCCA) and Healthy Start Programs, Head Start and Title V programs.
bulletIndividuals from Child Care Resource and Referral agencies
bulletIndividuals from child care regulatory and monitoring agencies

The Training Manual format allows trainers flexibility regarding the time they have to present the materials and the funds available to them in producing materials to distribute to child care providers. There is a PowerPoint presentation, handouts, and transparencies (overheads). As much as possible, we have included information and resources that are relevant. There is a breakdown of budget costs for reproducing the manual for workshops in the Training Prep segment.
We hope this Training Manual will be an invaluable tool for trainers and we appreciate any feedback regarding the materials. An evaluation form for the manual has been included in the front pocket with a self-addressed envelope.

Please contact Hanan Kallash, Assistant Program Coordinator, [email protected] or at 410.415.6628 for more information about the training manual.
