Teacher Professional Learning
We offer professional development workshops for teachers on a variety of topics from preschool through high school. Understanding that every situation can be different, we customize our interactive sessions to meet the specific needs of a school or classroom, from a 1-hour facilitated teacher discussion to full-day, expert-led trainings.
Our experts offer evidence-based practices that support goals such as:
- Optimizing learning and social adjustment for all students
- Effective and positive behavioral interventions for children with challenging behaviors
- Modifying classroom environments to minimize sensory overload and distractions
- Increasing student social skills and promoting empathy and inclusion
- Improving parent-teacher communication
We offer engaging, high-quality, parent education workshops that provide specific, practical parenting tools and strategies. Our team of experienced instructors address everyday parenting challenges, along with developmental or behavioral concerns. All workshops focus on building secure parent-child relationships while raising healthy, resilient children. Workshops are typically 1-hour to 90 minutes and cover a range of topics. Our experts can also work directly with individual families providing support, resources, and referrals as needed.
Services for Students
The Center for Children and Youth is equipped to address developmental concerns and behavioral challenges in the school environment. Our goal is to facilitate appropriate and timely interventions for each student, while providing support to both teachers and parents. Our educators and clinicians can observe students within the classroom environment to minimize disruptions, promote cooperative behavior, and develop individualized strategies that support success at school.
