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.
