Graduate Level Early Intervention Training

In collaboration with Kent State University (KSU), the Family Child Learning Center offers high quality, intensive graduate training programs. Each of these are designed specifically to help students acquire the knowledge and skills needed to work at positions related to serving children between birth to six years of age who are at-risk or have disabilities and their families. Students may be provided support in the form of traineeships or graduate assistantships. To receive support, students must be accepted into a graduate degree program at KSU and they must be recommended by the FCLC/KSU Interdisciplinary Training Committee.

Students wishing to apply for one of these programs should contact Marilyn Espe-Sherwindt at (330) 633-2055 or via E-mail at mespeshe@familychild.org for application forms and additional information.

Student Quote: “Looking back, I am amazed at the information I have learned regarding early intervention in general, and more specifically, about the responsive teaching strategies I have used and developed. More importantly, I feel extremely blessed to have the opportunity to develop a unique way of playing with the children in order to develop a special bond with each one of them. I am proud to tell outsiders about what I do, even if it is difficult to understand.”

Student Quote: “I now have a vested interest in all children that could benefit from the use of responsive teaching strategies, and I truly feel excited to know I have a chance to make a difference in a child’s live and in the lives of that child’s family.”
