Some of the great feedback we have received from onsite trainings (2014):
"This training was fantastic! It answered so many of our questions and provided ample opportunities to practice determining DALs. I would recommend this training to anyone wanting to learn how to administer or ensure that they are administering the HELP with fidelity!"
—EI Administrator

"I like that the presenter kept reminding us to look at the big picture and not just focus on numbers!"
—EHS Provider

"I felt like within the first 20 minutes of this training most of our group was blown away at how many “aha moments” we all had and some of us have been using the HELP for a long time!"
—EI Provider

"The group practice and discussion about why one person thought a certain way and another person thought differently. Breaking each example down and discussing why or why not and then looking at the Inside HELP manual."
—EI Provider

"Amy is great. She helped us collaborate and learn new concepts within EI and EHS programs."
—EI Administrator
