SERVICES: Training and seminars
Education/Disability Training and Seminars*
We strongly and passionately believe that knowledge plays a major role in helping us all to better understand each other, and in enabling public and private schools, childcare centers and other organizations to embrace and implement more inclusive practices, all for the greater good. With this focus in mind, we are available to provide training, consulting and seminars on a variety of topics related to:
- Special Education – IEPs, Inclusive Practices
- Early Childhood (Early Intervention, Preschool)
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- Family/School Collaborations
- Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Are you a disability or family related organization, an Intermediate Unit, or a school? We can develop a program to meet your specific needs and interests.
Are you an early childhood or child care center? We have access to PQAS certified trainers to help your employees meet their professional development requirements.
Employment Training and Seminars*
As part of our mission we pledge to help educate our clients on equal treatment of all individuals with respect to employment and workplace fairness as well as fairness with respect to public accommodations under the law. As an element of this mission, we will provide training and seminars to our non-profit, small business, institutional clients and others on topics related to:
- hiring your first employees;
- discipline and documentation;
- preventing sexual harassment in the workplace;
- preventing retaliation claims;
- complying with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA);
- complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA);
- preventing illegal discrimination in the workplace.
Now that legal rights regarding sexual orientation, transgender identity, gender transition, gender identity, and gender expression have been recognized in the Commonwealth as actionable before the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, we are available to review and update policies and procedures and to provide staff training with respect to these issues as well.
*We will design our presentation around your needs and will endeavor to provide any of these training services at a cost which is affordable for you. We are also available for presentations to professional organizations and civic groups on these topics.
