What People Are Saying

“I just want you to know how much I appreciate the work that you are doing. We also have so many care providers who try hard to stand by our children but eventually give up because of the behaviors they present. It is so encouraging to be able to help caregivers make sense of the child's behaviors so that they know where to focus their caregiving energy. ”

“Some of my team's clinicians and I attended the live webinar. Through what we learned our capacity to understand and communicate the needs of children /youth increased. We appreciated the practical hand on suggestions and learned how children/youth could try to calm their alarm system. thank you so much to all the CTR staff. The impact of your work is so far-reaching. ”

“What a privilege to be a part of this moment! I appreciated the pace, documentation, and accessibility of the information presented.”
