CMAS has been supporting programs in their work with immigrant and refugee children for over 15 years. And now, as Canadians work together to welcome Syrian refugees and help them settle successfully, we’re pleased to share this CMAS resource with you. To help provide children with the best possible care, CMAS has brought together a team of experts in the sector to create this comprehensive resource: Care for Syrian Refugee Children: A Program Guide for Welcoming Young Children and Their Families
It will provide program staff with the knowledge and tools they’ll need to better understand and respond to the unique experiences and needs of Syrian refugee children. The resource also includes tip sheets filled with practical strategies that are designed to be taken straight off the page and put into practice.
