Our Partnerships, Community-Based Training & Services!
Children’s Evaluation & Therapy Center has also given back to Prince George’s County and the surrounding metropolitan area through its partnerships with local universities. Specifically, for years now, we have accepted and trained student externs/interns from Bowie State University, George Washington University, Howard University, Towson University and the University of the District of Columbia.
Additionally, Children’s Evaluation & Therapy Center has conducted FREE professional development training (with Continuing Education Units for Maryland licensure renewal) through our CETC’s Learning Lab program for professionals who are not affiliated with our Center. Because knowledge and partnerships are powerful, we have offered community-based in-service training sessions for parents of children with special needs and educators.
Children’s Evaluation & Therapy Center has provided such trainings by teaming with the University of Maryland’s and Prince George’s Community College Child Development Clinics, The Arc of Prince George’s County, and local preschools.
Children’s Evaluation & Therapy Center has directly impacted families and the community through its FREE speech-language screenings at such county-wide events as the local Kettering-Largo-Mitchellville Family Day, and First Baptist Church of Glenarden’s expansive Health Expo, and Prince George’s County Developmental Centers Building for Success Conference.
