ICHD offers a special online course titled "How Children Learn?" which is the first of its kind in Bangladesh. There are a few institutions like IED-BRACU, ICMH, and TDI, which offer face-to-face courses on early childhood development. But for the first time ever, ICHD is introducing a flexible online course on early childhood development suitable for the distant learners who can give a little effort to do the course from convenient place and suitable time. A computer/laptop and a good internet connection will be good enough to take the course.
Institute of Child and Human Development (ICHD) is an academic/technical assistance organization set up by a few like-minded partners as a social enterprise to work in child development.
It intends to focus on a few limited areas initially targeting early childhood development and children with development delays and special needs, for which affordable quality services are non-existent. Training of professionals in child development; affordable services with acceptable quality in specific aspects of early childhood development, such as parenting skills and tasks; counseling clinics for children and parents; and community-based initiatives for socialization and values development of children are some of the critical needs identified in which ICHD would expects to be engaged.
ICHD, in addressing the priorities noted, will design and conduct professional training and short courses, provide services to parents and children in a demonstration and experiment mode, and undertake research initiatives to support evidence-based policy advocacy.
