Continuing Education

The Cohen Institute offers a wealth of continuing education opportunities for educators and psychologists.

Continuing education workshops for school psychologists include:

  • Setting Up a Response-to-Intervention Model on a Campus

  • Establishing a Model of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS)

  • Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBAs)

  • Behavior Intervention Plans (BIPs)

  • Crisis Intervention and Prevention

Presentations for educators include the following topics:

  • Special Education Overview

  • Systems of Early Intervention

  • District and Schoolwide Suicide Prevention Programming

  • Social Skills Development


We also provide school-based psychologists and administrators with opportunities to partner with us in offering parent workshops to the populations they work with.


Parent Advocacy

For parents who need direct assistance navigating the special education process, the Cohen Institute also offers individualized advocacy services. Our experienced practitioners can review a child's case history and facilitate communication between parents and school personnel before, during, and after special education meetings.
