As a nonprofit serving families with children with complex needs, we know receiving information on issues their children face from national experts can be vital.  We offer workshops, make and take classes, and private consultations that benefit educators, parents, caregivers, therapists and others in our community.  These we can range from 20-100 attendees, offering an opportunity to ask questions, gain information and improve the lives of the children we serve.

Ellis brings in nationally renowned researchers and professionals who are leading innovative developments in the fields pertaining to disability, special education or care like Kelly Dorfman, M.S., L.D.N., and Christine Roman-Lantzy, Ph.D.  Topics range from “Your Sensory Toolbox” to “Empower Your Brain” to discussing developments with specific concerns our children face like Cortical Vision Impairment.

These workshops are a great tool for not only parents and caregivers, but also therapists and educators who work with children in the community. They provide insight into ways to engage with students or clients and offer new approaches to increase successful outcomes.
