How to Receive Training

We ask teachers to attend one two-day workshop before implementing Foundations for Literacy.

Two weekend trainings will be conducted in Atlanta, GA and one in New York City free of charge in summer 2017 and for a fee thereafter. You must purchase the Foundations for Literacy curriculum to attend the training. Travel and accommodations are at the expense of the attendee. There is a limit on the number attendees for these workshops. Register early. Priority will be given to teachers who are currently teaching young DHH children. Others will be accommodated if space permits.

Weekend training at your school and ongoing coaching is available for a fee.
