"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." – Nelson Mandela

 

At The Stepping Stones Group, we believe each individual deserves an enriching environment to learn and grow. We know the importance and value of continued education and the prominent role it plays in contributing to professional growth, not only for our own clinicians but for the community as a whole. Our professional development offerings are presented by our very own clinical team through our online learning community, Bridge Academy.

Additionally, we offer select webinars and training to our school district clients and their employees. Every presentation targets hands-on, practical applications and resources presented by either clinical experts or nationally recognized speakers. Our courses are approved for ASHA, AOTA, and NASP continuing education credits.

If you have questions or are interested in receiving additional information about our presentations or training, please contact us at bridge@thesteppingstonesgroup.com.

"Awesome well-paced well-organized presentation."

"Great case studies/examples to work through."

"I just finished the AB 1172 training. I'm so glad we are having our staff take it. I've been trying to find training with some basic hands-off de-escalation tips for the past 5 years. Brittany Z. did an amazing job with this!"
