Mandatory pre-workshop self-study module:
This workshop includes a mandatory Self-Directed Module A that forms the basis of your learning and must be completed prior to the start of the workshop.
Attendance requirements:
This workshop is a licensing workshop which culminates in gaining a license to use the SPARK coaching methodology and the accompanying resources. Full attendance is required. This means attending the full 2.5 hrs of every module and completing the two self-directed modules. Attendance will be tracked during the training. No recordings will be available of the live sessions.

We will not approve absences. You should register for a workshop only if you can attend all modules from beginning to end.

Failure to meet the attendance requirement will result in your license being withheld, with no refund provided.

Please note: Attendance in this workshop requires that you own the It Takes Two to Talk guidebook. This workshop is available at a reduced price to allow participants to purchase their individual copy of the guidebook. The guidebook is used throughout the training and you cannot participate without it. For a list of options to purchase the guidebook click here.
Additional details:
By the end of this training, you’ll feel fully equipped to not only address the specific early communication development of young children with language delays, but also to empower parents in one-to-one, face-to-face settings to create the kind of interactions that lay the foundations for communication and language.
