Training and Consultation
read moreWe have experience in developing and implementing programs along the child service continuum. Having an early childhood system of care is important to our agency and our community. As a result, we have invested time and resources into developing clinical skills that strengthen and support this system of care. We provide training and consultation to communities that are interested in building and supporting their own system of care for children. This could include early childhood mental health consultation, implementing evidence-based practices, strategies to improve organizational capacity, and development of billing systems to increase program sustainability.

This continuity of care has been beneficial to many families as they transition into new school settings. Behavioral consultation often involves navigating the emotions of dealing with special learning needs, and helping children work on social-emotional development in the classroom setting. We provide coaching and support for parents, teachers and school staff as part of reaching treatment goals.
