Good News Friday!

Imagine! has been selected as one of four Community Centered Boards in Colorado to participate in an in-depth training/pilot program site for “Early Intervention Colorado Autism Guidelines for Infants and Toddlers”. We will have staff members from our Dayspring, Imagine! Behavioral Health Services, and Service Coordination departments take part in monthly mentoring and coaching for 14 months.

In addition, staff members will participate in full-day trainings that will focus on:

-Developing evidence-based Individualized Family Service Plans (IFSPs);

-Selecting intervention strategies that best match child characteristics, family strengths, and routines that are challenging for the child and/or family; and

-Developing formative evaluation systems to facilitate data-based decisions.

Staff members will be coached by leaders at the University of Colorado Denver/Positive Early Learning Experiences (PELE) Center:

Phillip S. Strain, Ph.D.
Ted Bovey, M.A.
Patricia Oliver, Ph.D., BCBA
Edy Purcell, M.A., BCBA
Kelley Bramlage, M.A.

We look forward to the training and coaching we receive, knowing it will benefit everyone we work with!
