2017 Child Development Online Conference
 

Do you work with children who are unable to enjoy childhood to the fullest?

As adults, we reminisce about our carefree childhood: Playing in the park with our friends, strictly obeying the 10-second law of fallen food, and that moment of pride as you master the challenge of riding a bike.

But the children you see in your office aren’t experiencing the same joys. They are struggling with:

  • Anxiety
  • Dysregulation
  • ODD
  • OCD
  • ASD
  • SPD
  • Autism
  • ADHD
  • …And more

At times, it can feel as though you don’t have the tools you need to help these children grow and develop.

That's why we've spent the last year reviewing hundreds of tools, strategies and techniques for child development. Not all of them were cost effective, some didn't work well enough, and some just weren't efficient enough.

But among the techniques that failed were diamonds in the rough, and we've hand-selected the best professionals in the industry to develop the 2017 Child Development Online Course; an intensive online training filled with evidence-based practices that work.

Through 13 intensive sessions, you'll gain the skills and confidence to transform your practice and permanently change the lives of your clients.

Don't wait to get started. The kids in your practice don't have years to get through trainings and therapies. They need your help now so they can move forward and find success as quickly as possible.
