Professional Workshops and Community Presentations
For teachers and parents, psychology practices, physician’s offices, professional organizations, and schools/educational programs.
Our Professional Workshops and Community Presentations, tailored to your group, increase understanding of child development and how to successfully implement strategies to help children succeed. Presentations are completely customized so that the material is tailored to the specific needs of your organization. Workshops can be planned as a one-time event or set up to be a series of on-going trainings. Typically a presentation includes 45-60 minutes for lecture and application, plus 15-30 minutes for questions and answers. More in-depth programs, up to full-day, can be arranged. Please contact Brittni Winslow (email@example.com) to inquire about available presentations, dates, and rates. CEUs are available for some workshops.

Emerge also offers consultation/observation to schools regarding general and/or specific questions/concerns. More and more schools are finding that the children they serve are presenting with more complex and challenging behaviors. Many of these children have sensory processing difficulties that interfere with the child’s ability to successfully meet classroom demands. Other children struggle with learning to write. An OT can often offer on-the-spot recommendations to help the child be more successful. While a one-time visit may be all that is necessary, some larger school programs may find it valuable to contract for 2-4 hours of on-site consultation monthly. Please contact Brittni Winslow (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information about scheduling and rates.
