Upcoming ESDM Advanced Training Workshops

“Michaela was extremely supportive as I worked through each step of my ESDM certification. She gave me detailed written feedback on each of my assignments as well as made herself available to discuss certain concepts on which I needed further clarification. During these conversations, she provided me with relevant, down-to-earth examples that helped me better connect to the techniques I was learning to implement.”

Christy Cheremshynski, BCBA

“The first time I came into contact with the ESDM, an empirical treatment of autism in young children was when I first met Janet. I found this training to be very helpful in my practice. ​My trainer was Janet Harder. She is experienced and knowledgeable. She has a warm and empathetic manner of teaching, has a collaborative style of support, and a strong understanding of the specific components of the model. Her support allowed me to grow and progress during my learning process. She supported me in my learning and ensured I demonstrated the required fidelity skills to obtain certification in the ESDM.”

Dexter Fan, Licensed Clinical Psychologist

“I took my ESDM advanced training with Janet and Michaela and it was truly transformational as a clinician. The “in the moment” coaching and unwavering support was unparalleled. They are fun and engaging and truly passionate about quality evidence based practice that is respectful and responsive to the child and the family. I also completed my ESDM Therapist certification with Michaela and have learned soo much! She is and will continue to be my mentor throughout my professional career.”

Carla Willock, ​Registered Speech-Language Pathologist

“Thank you Janet and Michaela, for providing an excellent ESDM Advanced workshop for our group. The whole workshop was very inspiring, helped us to shape our therapy skills and dig deep into ESDM way of thinking. With every session I felt how my practical skills were improving, being able to notice smallest details of communication, targeting the selected goals and reflecting on my own work. You were very supportive and taking into account our individual needs. I would definitely love to attend other trainings from the two of you.”

Tini Avsajanishvili, Speech-Language Pathologist

The online format of the ESDM Advanced Workshop, and small group size, provided immense value in terms of allowing for in-depth questions & discussions, as well as clarification of content and its application in real-life contexts. Reviews of videos allowed for practice and improvement on fidelity items. Janet was impeccable in her delivery of the training. She drew from her knowledge in the application of ESDM, as well as previous trainings, to provide a rich and engaging learning environment. In addition, she possessed a “coach” quality (instead of an “expert” approach) that allowed participants to feel open to asking questions and being open to improving on techniques.

Daiz Wang, M.Ed, BCBA

“I have learned so much about parent coaching with Michaela and Janet in the parent coach training workshops. I am excited use what I have learned in practice with my clients in the future! The strengths of the workshop were the instructor’s passion and enthusiasm as well as knowledge of the content of parent coaching. I really enjoyed the discussions we had throughout the sessions and really liked the website resources provided. The workshop will help in my job as I will start my own parent coaching sessions with parents and adopt this as my main approach to service delivery.”
