Online Training

CDI’s trainings have been very helpful for me as a parent.  There is so much information online, it’s hard to know what to do as a parent.  CDI’s trainers are very knowledgeable and help me understand how I can best meet my child’s needs and also how to advocate for services.  I’m grateful to have had their support and personalized guidance.
