Online courses

Find wonderful training that will really let you think about your practice and the families you serve... without leaving your own computer or other device.

Most of our training sessions are presented as PowerPoint slides with voice-over from Dr. Anderson (video courses). If you are able to watch videos on your computer or phone, you can do this!  Other courses are presented as a series of activities (web-based courses). These get you really involved in ideas and are fun to do. 

Either way, you'll love Dr. Anderson's warm, engaging manner and the clear, interesting information she shares, information you can apply right away to your everyday work. 


Our courses earn professional development credit, of course, and include a certificate of completion. The Skillful Teacher is an approved training organization in Washington and Illinois. Our courses are accepted in every state.
