Training and Outreach
CICF is the home for interdisciplinary specialty training programs in intervention services for young children. These programs will provide students opportunities to acquire the professional competencies and research skills that are needed to provide evidence based services to young children and their caregivers. Trainees at this Center include master’s and doctoral degree students from MSASS who have career interests in working in programs that address the needs of infants, preschoolers and school aged children. It will also include students with similar interests from other academic programs at CWRU, including psychology, speech pathology, nursing or pediatrics.
CICF is also involved in outreach and continuing education programs for professionals working with young children and their families in local and national social service programs.
