"Stronger than the Storm": Keeping Infants and Young Children in Mind During the Response to Superstorm Sandy
Costa, Gerard; Mulrooney, Kathleen; Spinazzola, Nicci
ZERO TO THREE, v34 n2 p55-62 Nov 2013
Superstorm Sandy hit the coast of New Jersey with deadly force causing hundreds of miles of coastline damage, loss of homes, property and road damage, and power outages throughout the region. despite the state's strong disaster response network, most programs and responders have little background in supporting the needs of infants and very young children in the wake of natural disasters. likewise, support for early child care centers and family care providers needed to become a greater priority in targeting response. The Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health at Montclair State University and the New Jersey Association for Infant Mental Health took the lead in convening key stakeholders throughout New Jersey and early Head Start/Head Start to provide awareness building, training, and referrals targeting very young children. This article outlines the need for a special focus on infants and young children after a disaster and the efforts in New Jersey to engage messaging around the needs of infants, toddlers, and their caregivers in the face of the storm.
