We seek to advance knowledge of evidence-based strategies for excellence in service provision by providing training and resources to educators, health-related service providers, and school- and non-school-based professionals.
The Clinic offers customized trainings on a variety of topics, provided via professional development, workshops, and presentations. Clinicians, as individuals or in teams, can be hired to conduct training for school-based teams or school-wide audiences, medical professionals, or other organizations. Training can be arranged face-to-face or virtually.
Several sample training topics are listed below. Please contact The Clinic to discuss your school or organization’s specific needs.
- Promoting accessibility for deaf students in mainstream settings
- Considerations of working with students using a trauma-sensitive lens
- Empowering communication through echolalia
- The role of assessment in understanding medically complex children
- Integrating “academic” and “functional” learning for adolescent learners with special needs
Mentoring and Supervising Professionals
The Clinic is eager to support professionals through formal mentorship or supervisory opportunities. The Clinic is currently staffed by experts in psychology, speech and language, deaf and special education, literacy/reading, behavior, and assistive technology; our clinicians have extensive experience in working with specialized populations. We desire to raise the bar in service provision through mentoring and supervising pre-service educators and early career clinicians. This strengthens the knowledge base for supporting deaf and hearing individuals with complex communication needs.
