Professional Development

Our Professional Development program is designed to enhance clinical decision-making skills, therapy, and educational techniques for direct service providers, personal attendants and parents. The ultimate outcome is to enhance the independence of people they work and live with who have disabilities.  Professional Development provides both continuing education workshops and customized training services.

We provide customized in-service training for individuals or small groups who are health care providers, day care providers, educators and paraprofessionals.  Custom workshops can be designed by choosing the topic(s), schedule and location.  Incorporate multiple topics and instructors to maximize your training.
