Seminars are 1-hour long. There are 3 topics:

Once groups can gather again, any organization in the county may schedule 1, 2, or all 3 seminars to be presented at your facility. Scheduling is flexible but done on a first-come, first-served basis.


Workshops are 1.5hrs on a particular topic:    

  • Dealing with Disobedience      

  • Managing Fighting and Aggression

  • Bedtime Routines

  • Going Shopping

These will be scheduled on demand virtually until life gets back to where we can gather in various places. Once we're able to gather, check listings in the Salisbury Post Community Calendar of Events, or Facebook.


Individual sessions meet virtually or by phone once a week for 3 or 4 weeks. You’ll learn typical reasons misbehaviors occur, choose from among several ways to prevent them, then decide on some strategies for handling the behaviors if they still occur. Plan on spending about an hour at the first meeting, 45 minutes for the second, then just 15-20 minutes for the third and fourth get-togethers. Sessions are scheduled on demand, as needed.
