40 Developmental Assets Posters
Large, glossy posters (22 by 34 inches) display the 40 Developmental Assets in English on one side, flipping over to Spanish. Each of the eight sections is printed in a different color, with circular icons representing topics, such as a red heart for Support. The preschool poster (ages 3-5) features children’s faces inside bright daisy frames. On the adolescents poster, golden targets float like bubbles. These colorful wall graphics provide a handy reference.
