Each block (i.e., each develop the brochure) presents concerns in a separate area: (1) poverty, highlighting the number of children living in poverty, side effects of poverty, and strategies for reducing poverty; (2) child abuse, focusing on the Shaken Baby Syndrome and Fetal Alcohol Syndrome; (3) child care and preschool education, especially with regard to program quality and infant care; (4) health care, focusing on access to health care, low birth weight infants, and nutrition; and (5) parenting skills, focusing on ways to provide nurturing to children. For each area, information is presented on the extent of the problem, pertinent information, strategies to prevent or reduce the severity of the problem or address the concerns, and available resources. Finally, the efforts of Wyoming Kids Count are described and contact information is given. (KB)
