About the Course

The Keys to Change

Learn how to provide culturally responsive school-based consultation.

Culture is the foundation of our communities. As the demographics of our nation changes, there is an ever-growing need for culturally-responsive practices.

The work of behavior analysts and other school-based clinicians is invaluable within our educational system. We create improved learning environments, reduce educator burnout, and reduce dangerous and disruptive behaviors in students.

School-based consultation is a model which has been widely praised as an effective route to building school capacity – so how can you be more culturally conscious every day?  The answers are in this course.
