Parent & Educator Workshops

We run a variety of professional development and training workshops to support educators, parents and carers to better understand specific developmental challenges and how to address them. Our workshops are led by bestchance ECI’s team of therapists, who specialise in supporting children with developmental delay and disabilities across a range of environments.

In addition to expanding knowledge and learning strategies to deal with challenges, parents and educators are able to share their experiences and be part of a community.
