HIV/AIDS in Early Intervention and Pre-School
Course Objectives, Outcomes & Other Relevant Information

HIV/AIDS is now one of the top three leading causes of childhood mortality in the United States in the hardest hit states of New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and Florida, and is ranked as the seventh leading cause of childhood mortality in the U.S. Considered a pandemic, that is – worse than an epidemic – as it has global distribution and is actively spreading. An estimated 3 million children worldwide under the age of 15 are currently living with HIV/AIDS. Since the pandemic began approximately 14 million children have been orphaned in southwestern Africa alone, many of which are cared for by elderly grandparents.

Women of childbearing age represent one of the faster growing groups with AIDS. Many infected babies signs in babies and toddlers include delayed ability in reaching motor milestones, such as talking, crawling, and later walking. Many children between the ages of 0-3 in the urban setting setting are infected with HIV. Interaction with children and families is protected by special privacy law with respect to sharing information about child status, and interacting with these children requires specialized unique training in infection control precautions - for example, should the child have a nose-bleed during treatment -  especially for early intervention therapists who work in a one-one role with these children in the home.

Learn the critical infection control precautions that you must implement when treating a child with HIV/AIDS, and learn imperative protocols and laws relating to communicating in verbal or written form about the child‘s condition, and specifically how you may do so, and under what narrow conditions this may occur. This course is indispensable to all child care providers in the early intervention and pre-school setting, especially as violation of this private information may result in monetary fines and retributive punitive measures against that therapist/interventionist protecting these children and families. Learn the appropriate manner in which such information may be shared.
