Talks on Tuesdays Webinar: Unpacking our Biases in Early Intervention
Your impact on families goes well beyond the time you spend with them. The words you use, the compassion you show, and the integrity you model can have long lasting effects! Come talk with us about unpacking your personal biases and beliefs so you can have the most positive long term influence on the children and families with whom you are privileged to work.

Registration slots for our ToTs frequently fill quickly HOWEVER far fewer people join the actual webinar. We'd like to request that you register only if you plan to attend so that all who are interested are able to login. Additionally, if you participate as a group, each individual does not need to register. One person can register for the group and can then share the access to the survey allowing each individual to obtain a certificate of participation. As a reminder, all ToTs are archived for your ease of access at times convenient to you. Thank you in advance for helping.
