Marxaladaha Heerarka Koboca (Milestone Moments)

Description

A resource guide translating the original English version of the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) booklet Milestone Moments into the Somali language. In collaboration with Somali community members, the Minnesota Act Early team and the Minnesota LEND program worked to develop the booklet to be more accessible to the local Somali community. Members of the Somali community translated the booklet and integrated photos of children and families from the community. The resource guide will help Somali families track their child's development and provide information on how to act early if they have a concern about their child's development. The CDC's original English version of the brochure can be viewed at http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/actearly/pdf/parents_pdfs/milestonemomentsengcover.pdf PDF.
