Enhancing Early Education Environments

Empower’s Consultation Services for Children is grant funded by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). Our dedicated consultants collaborate with educators, program leadership and families to observe children in their natural educational environment and offer strategies and resources that promote the development of positive social-emotional learning. Consultants facilitate screening tools, identify risk factors and provide reflective practice focusing on strength-based approaches for responding to challenging or atypical behaviors.

Consultations can center on an individual child, a general classroom or on a program as a whole. Referrals can be made by educators, families or collateral supports.
