Problem Solving and Coaching Sessions

For teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, or CSE directors (1-10 days)

We now also offer coaching and problem solving from practicing Inclusion Facilitators, Co-Teachers, and Related Service Providers who work with our team. These practitioners can coach in person or remotely.
