FOX Sports is celebrating the launch of the Child Specialist Education (CSE) program, the latest effort in an increasingly complex global effort to educate children from birth.
Child specialist education is an approach to child development that combines the skills, knowledge and knowledge of a primary care pediatrician with the support of a specialized pediatrician.
The goal is to develop the best possible education of children from conception to 5 years of age.”CSE is a key element of a child’s development,” said Dr. Richard J. Bies, M.D., chairman of the department of obstetrics and gynecology at Columbia University Medical Center and the world’s leading expert on the health effects of child care.
“Children need to have the information that will help them to understand what’s right for them.”CSE has been used by the U.S. for decades to provide health care to infants, toddlers, preschoolers and school-aged children.
The program was developed by the National Institutes of Health, the Children’s Health Insurance Program and the Child and Family Development Program in conjunction with several organizations including the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences and the National Science Foundation.
The new CSE program is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and will provide up to $500 million over three years to the National Association of State Child and Adolescent Health Directors.
It will cover the cost of training new and existing pediatricians and pediatricians of child specialists.
The primary aim of the program is to provide parents with the best information about what their child should be doing during their toddler years, with the hope that these parents will encourage them to continue in the care that they’ve been given and that their child will develop well.
“I want to emphasize the importance of the CSE training, and I know it is very expensive.
It’s also very challenging for the parents,” said J. Robert Curran, a pediatrician and the former president of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the co-author of the CDC report, “Adults Need to Learn How to Adopt.”
“They are in a very difficult position, and that’s because they are doing the best they can.
And the best way to learn is to do the best you can, to help your child be successful.”
The cost of the initial training is expected to be less than $20,000 per child.
The initial funding of $500,000 will go toward three years of training for primary care physicians, including up to three years for primary pediatricians, who will provide instruction on the proper care of children.
“The main focus will be to get the primary care doctors trained in the principles of primary care,” said Bies.
“They will learn how to talk to children about their needs and about the benefits and the costs of being involved in the child care.”
The primary care doctor will also learn about the medical needs of children and their care needs.
The pediatrician will teach the parents about what children need and how to be involved in their child’s care.
The two pediatricians will provide parent support and will also collaborate with a child specialist, who in turn will provide the information and support to the primary child and other children.
The program will also provide parents of child specialist children a chance to meet the child and to learn more about their child.
“CSE will help parents to become more involved in helping their child,” said Curran.
“It’s about finding ways to work with their child, finding ways for them to become comfortable, to feel like they’re part of the family and not the burden.”
The initial cost of CSE for a child from birth through 5 is $500 per child, but Curran estimates that the cost could be reduced by $50 to $100 per child for those that are able to stay at home.
“If parents can stay at the home and get a little bit of help with it, then that’s a great investment,” said Ariely.
“For most families, the cost is $400 or $500 a year.
But if you can stay home and make the savings and save the money, that’s probably a great deal,” said Kelli Geddes, a clinical social worker and a pediatric nurse practitioner in Texas.
“We can also give families a little something extra to look forward to.
We’ll be able to offer some additional things, like the ability to have an in-home child care that’s on-demand.”
