VIDBE-Q Volume 64 Issue 4 6 and guidelines are needed within our field. Cathy Smyth's article on tactile development will showcase how tactile development starts very early and the importance of an early focus to this critical sensory channel for future braille access. Tracey Gaver and I then focus on two family centered practices; providing services through an Infant Mental Health lens and the impact of parent to parent social support. This issue will either be an introduction to the unique needs of infants and toddlers or a refresher for new ideas to support all children and their families. But I hope that it inspires you to incorporate these concepts as you teach students of all ages on your caseloads, and also to look at the importance of supporting our youngest learners to create the best foundation for future learning. Please feel free to contact me at any time about this special VIDBE-Q issue, or early intervention for the visually impaired in general, as I love to talk about babies and ways to support their sweet families!
