Intensive Training Program for the Caregiver or Nanny

Being a caregiver for a child with special needs has its unique challenges and frustrations for both the caregiver and the child.  We offer an 8-hour intensive course over 8 weeks to provide in-depth education to those that have direct contact and care for the child with special needs. Our class uses significant personalized instruction from our therapists with a small ratio of students to clinicians so that all students develop effective skills in caring for the child.  Classes are 1-hour in length and offered weekly.  Certification granted upon completion of course work and testing.
