Early Childhood intervention in Portugal – Fundação LIGA takes centre stage in cross-municipal ECEC conference 

The end of March 2024 marked a significant event for Fundação LIGA, our Portuguese COFACE Disability member. In fact, representatives of their Early Childhood Intervention Program participated in the inaugural meeting of ELI AASMA. ELI AASMA is the Early Childhood Intervention Association for the municipalities of Alenquer, Arruda dos Vinhos, and Sobral de Monte Agraço and serves as a platform for collaboration and knowledge-sharing among professionals working to support children and families.   

The conference included various insightful discussions led by experts in Early Childhood Education and Care, covering topics like Inclusive Education, Challenges in Child Development, and Mental Health in Families and Children. Practical examples were shared by representatives from the SNIPI Technical Supervision Center for Lisbon and the Tagus Valley, spanning the domains of Health (Dr. Pedro Caldeira), Education (Dr. Ana Paula Monteiro), and Social Security (Dr. Teresa Nunes Marques). 

Overall, the ELI AASMA inaugural meeting served as a valuable platform for dialogue and collaboration among professionals dedicated to supporting children and families in their early years. It highlights the need for collective efforts to address the diverse needs of children and promote their overall well-being.
