2023: IMPACT’s Year of Growth
We’re excited to be continuing this work this year and beyond to empower early childhood professionals with knowledge and strategies to meet the unique needs of children with challenging behavior and disabilities. We look forward to continuing to work with you to decrease expulsion and increase access to high quality inclusive early learning for all children!
Although IMPACT has been providing training and consultation services since 2018 in Washington State, this last year marked our official launch nationwide. We are thrilled to have learners enrolled in our online school from 27 states (and 5 countries!) and look forward to having an even broader reach this year.
In addition to delivering live trainings through our online school and professional development days for early learning programs, IMPACT was also honored to be invited to present at multiple state and national conferences in 2023. IMPACT team members presented at:
- The International Inclusion Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
- The Child Care Aware of America Symposium
- The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Professional Learning Institute
- The Washington Association for the Education of Young Children (WAEYC) annual conference
- Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation Conference, the Center of Excellence at Georgetown University
- Infant and Early Childhood Conference (IECC)
IMPACT trained a total of 1,433 providers last year, reaching an estimated 11,500 children. These providers include early childhood educators, early intervention therapists, home visitors, elementary educators, early childhood coaches, parents, and more. We’re thrilled to have received an overall 99% satisfaction rating for all our online on-demand courses and live trainings and look forward to continuing to meet the training needs of the community.
We are excited to share with you all that IMPACT
accomplished in 2023. And because we couldn’t have done any of this without
your collaboration, we want to also say thank you to all of you who
participated in IMPACT trainings, courses, or consultation services over the
last year. Together, we are thrilled to be making progress toward our mission
of all children having access to high-quality inclusive early learning!
