HANDLE Training

Since 1983, HANDLE Instructors have provided training to more than 10,000 parents, individuals with specific concerns, and professionals (special educators, psychologists, early childhood educators, occupational and physical therapists, family counselors, etc.) in countless seminars and workshops. HANDLE continues to certify instructors to help with the growing worldwide demand for training. Courses are frequently offered in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, South Africa, Malaysia, Australia, and New Zealand.

To fulfill its mission of training others in the principles and practices of HANDLE, The HANDLE Institute offers several training programs.

The Introductory courses are for anyone interested in learning more about the HANDLE approach and its applications, or who might be working with people who might benefit from the HANDLE approach. One Introductory course is required as a prerequisite for Intermediate courses.

The Intermediate and Advanced courses are courses that result in certifications that allow the graduate to offer services in association with The HANDLE Institute.
