We believe that stronger organizations and stronger practitioners make for stronger communities.

CORA Services is well respected in the educational and human services fields for providing high-quality services to children, youth and families. Capitalizing on our 45 years of experience, we have become an asset to the broader service community by convening others in the field and providing critical resources to them including professional development, clinical consultation, and practical resources to educators.

CORA’s Professional Development Committee has been hard at work preparing for the 2018 – 2019 School Year!

CORA has worked continuously to consider the very informative and helpful feedback from PD Surveys to develop several new programs, specifically designed to teach skills that can be implemented in our respective positions. Additionally, we were able to bring a broader topic interface to CORA, guaranteeing opportunities for each discipline to receive valuable training here at home base. We will also be working to reach out to other local organizations and the community and have them join us in these events.

The theme for this upcoming year will be variety and most importantly communication.
