IDP parenting workshops

The Infant Development Program is delighted to offer a series of four workshops for parents. Each workshop will be held over Zoom. Registration is free, and is limited to 100 participants.

workshop #1

becoming a behavioural detective: understanding and supporting complex behaviour


There is always a reason for the behaviour! This powerful 90-minute online training will provide an introduction into understanding why people do the things they do. The focus will be on complex and challenging behaviour, and what's going on behind it: emotional / relationship problems, developmental disabilities, attachment strategies, sensory processing and more. This online experience is designed to support any parent who is compassionately curious about what's going on for their children, and who is eager to help them be their best selves.

your facilitator: Kim Barthel, Occupational Therapist
