Learn the Signs, Act Early
“ Learn the Signs. Act Early .” announces a new project to highlight the importance of early awareness and identification efforts through the experiences of individual families.

These spotlights will provide an opportunity to recognize individuals who demonstrate the importance of acting early through diverse voices and perspectives (family member, early educator, health care professional) and to develop a resource of ‘family stories’ that may be useful to state policy and advocacy activities and in presentations to a variety of audiences.

Over the past years, “Learn the Signs. Act Early.” Partner Spotlights have presented the work of dedicated partners and campaign champions who support the campaign goals of early awareness and identification. Champions for Families Spotlights will recognize individuals nominated by families. Each Spotlight will focus on the child and family, describing how the Champion helped the family learn the signs and act early .

Champions for Families nominations can be submitted by completing a simple nomination form. Information about Champions for Families and the nomination form are posted on the campaign website at www.cdc.gov/actearly as a downloadable PDF for fax or mail submission.
