Maternal-Infant Health Workgroup
The Maternal-Infant Health workgroup is made up of participants from tribes, urban programs and partners. The MIH Workgroup meets quarterly and the meetings are determined via doodle poll. The overall purpose of the group is to improve maternal and infant health among American Indian and Alaska Natives in Washington state. The group also serves as an advisory board for various initiatives and programs working with Maternal Infant health in the state. The goal is to have tribally driven input and solutions to improve the MIH Health disparities in our communities and our state.

The Infant Toddler Consultant Self-Assessment Tool (Self-Assessment Tool) is designed for consultants from all disciplines (health, mental health, education, social services, etc.) who work in any setting that provides services to infants, toddlers, and their families, or who provide support to individuals working in these settings. The primary purpose of this tool is for consultants to assess their own level of proficiency with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to support early childhood programs that serve infants and toddlers. This self-assessment tool is a companion to A Guide to Effective Consultation with Settings Serving Infants, Toddlers, and their Families: Core Knowledge, Competencies, and Dispositions (CKC Guide) previously developed in Region I. Both the CKC Guide and this self-assessment tool were developed by Region I workgroups composed of representatives from all six New England States, national technical assistance providers, and staff from the Region I Office of Child Care and Office of Head Start.
