Professional Development

  • 1.  Professional Development

    Hi Everyone,

    Do you have a favorite place to find Professional Development opportunities--especially for those who work with Infants and Toddlers? We like BetterKidCare and of course NAEYC, but we are looking for some other resources.

    Thank you for sharing!
    Best,
    Alison

    Alison I also offer professional development sessions (now on zoom of course) on a number of different topics, but mainly on recognizing invisible barriers to learning such as sensory processing disorder and ACES.  And I offer music and movement workshops for schools looking to build a repertoire of interactive activities and songs to teach children about acceptance/compassion/inclusion/kind communities etc.  Contact me if you would like more details :-)
