MALTA Safer Internet Centre
BeSmartOnline! - Malta
For the 4th consecutive year, BeSmartOnline! shall be organising a number of initiatives to mark Safer Internet Day 2015. The following initiatives are planned for this year:
Seminar for Early Childhood Intervention Specialists:
The Early Intervention Service aims to provide a family centred and comprehensive support system for children with developmental disabilities or delays in the first five years (0-5) of life. The principle is to minimize the delays and maximize the chances of reaching typical milestones in development.

Objective of the Seminar is that of providing these specialists with insights into the impact of technology on the development of children.
