Kazoo concert at fair to raise awareness for state infant-toddler program
Learn more about the N.C. Early Intervention Infant-Toddler Program and participate in a kid's kazoo symphony at this free event at the fair on Monday.Posted — Updated
If you go, you'll get a free kazoo to participate in a kazoo version of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebees." There also will be some updated versions of songs such as "The Ants Go Marching" and "Don't Worry, Be Happy." They'll be offered as reminders for parents to learn about their infants and toddlers' developmental milestones.
“Babies develop so quickly that a lot can happen even in a few weeks. If development is not progressing, getting help early can make a significant difference in the baby’s outcome and in the family’s life,” State Health Director Jeff Engel said in a press release. “The earlier you know, the better they’ll grow.”
Organizers will be there to share with parents, other caregivers and the public about why they need to be quick to notice any delays in a baby or toddler's speech, hearing, motor skills or other areas of development, and to seek help in identifying any potential problems.
The Be Early campaign is part of the North Carolina Early Intervention Branch of the N.C. Division of Public Health. The Infant-Toddler Program provides support and services for families and their children, from birth to three, who have special needs. Agencies work across the state with local service providers to help families help their kids succeed.
