Health Professional Training

Demand for our specialist training and workshops is at an all-time high – and we now provide a wide range of training services for health professionals. Whether you are a Doctor, Dentist, Art therapist, dietician or nutritionist, occupational therapist, physiotherapist, psychologist, or speech and language therapist, our training or consultation can make all the difference.

NETwork training is a great way to learn tools to maximise your time with the children in your practise who have additional needs. We design personal training packages that suit your profession and personal challenges such as:

  • Tools to help children eat the foods you recommend in your nutrition plan
  • How to set up your waiting room for children with additional needs
  • How to capture and contrive motivation to ensure your child(ren) engage in the programmes you are designing and implementing with them.

NETwork training is also a great way to keep up with the latest developments in the field of teaching language, behaviour and communication skills to children with additional needs.

We can train the entire staff team, a smaller group of staff in your practice, or provide one to one training for yourself or a colleague.

Below is just a sample of the professional courses we are currently offering:

1. How to decrease challenging behaviour.
2. How to teach children with a diagnosis of Autism and developmental delays
3. ABA training for those providing one to one support for children with autism and developmental delays
4. Train the trainer: training you to train the families of your patient

We would love to meet with you, at no obligation, to talk through your training needs.

NETwork training is delivered by experienced trainers who are highly qualified in their field and have first-hand experience working with children in different environments.

“I learnt so much from this workshop and would recommend it without hesitation. I can’t wait to go back and use the procedures for dealing with extremely challenging behaviours on my class” Sarah, Edinburgh.

“Network Interventions were thoroughly professional at all times. They maintained an excellent relationship with the staff and were responsive and adaptable in their meeting times and methodologies. They offered support and advice to staff and were always friendly and courteous, demonstrating a genuine desire to forge a productive relationship for the benefit of the child.” Paul, UK.

"Our son was diagnosed with Asperger’s aged 7; NETwork Interventions spent a day observing him at school and at home and quickly identified the skills he was lacking – skill deficits that we - and others working with our son - had not picked up on. NETwork Interventions trained us to help our son learn those missing skills. The results have been remarkable – he no longer cries about going to school, his concentration and behaviour are much better and he is far less likely to alienate others by the things he says. Thank you."

"It is always a pleasure talking to Lu and Shelley - we think they are superstars!"
C & C, Ottawa

"We started an informal intervention for our 18 month old last week, Zack. Lu came for an observation around a month ago. This was followed by Shelley spending two days with our family last week. Our 18 month old had three signs and plenty of motivation and social intent, but no requests for items or people. He had a few unintelligible requests for activities and just sounds or unintelligible words for when he labels things. We have done our research. As professionals in the field of child development and with ASD and ADHD in our extended family, we know that it is better to act earlier rather than later. We didn’t want a heavy or burdensome programme for reasons of time, of finance and also of emotion. Admitting there may be a problem is actually very difficult. Last week was extremely draining emotionally in this capacity. We know that prevention is necessary as there is no firm cure and we can’t take the risk of not intervening and waiting another six months as our GP and Paediatrician told us. Shelley came to the farm with us, came swimming with us, to the park and to granny and grandpa’s home with us. She did day to day life with us such as bath time and bed time. The first day Shelley watched what life was like for me, balancing home, children, marriage and work. Life is hectic. The second day we swapped roles and she put recommendations in acting as I would and then supported me to implement it. She is coming back on Thursday to see how we are getting on and she is returning with a new schedule for me after going away to analyse it these last few days. We are absolutely thrilled with Zack’s progress already. His Gymboree teachers commented on his language ‘explosion’. His aunty, who does not know that we are running this intervention, commented on how much Zack is talking this week. I am confident that within a few months, Zack will not have a spiky developmental profile and it looks as though he will have even more skills than his peers at this rate. This is fun and I am so grateful to Shelley, Lu and Ruth who, together, have created the ‘perfect programme’ for us."

"This week I have been feeling very defeated with my son changing campuses at school. At the end of my call with Shelley I was filled with hope again. That is why I love our calls. Not simply because of the work with my son, but because Shelley always helps me to see a way forward. "
Gem, Brisbane

"I have had previous counselling for over two years but left because of no progress. I am finding the experience with Liz different in a very positive way. After just four sessions I am seeing great progress."

"The observation and assessment period that NETwork complete at the beginning is difficult to understand at the outset, but it turns out that it is an intricate process that [does] indeed find the issues to work on and subsequently address and resolve."
Mum, Quebec

"Dillan had significant behavioural issues and received a very late diagnosis of NVLD when he was 9 years old. This diagnosis did little to help our family. Louise quickly and efficiently set up a programme for our teenage son which rapidly identified his strengths and weaknesses. Shelley taught us and his teachers how to best address these, including language deficits which had previously remained unrecognised, Louise’s team worked within our budget, working hours and extensive travel commitments, working closely with school and our local authority to ensure everybody was on board and funding accessed. At times it felt as though Louise was coordinating a small army. Additional support of parent-counselling through Louise’s team proved invaluable, even though we were originally a little sceptical. It most likely made the difference between success and failure in our ability as parents to sustain a positive family unit whilst implementing the programme. We worked with NETwork Interventions for just under one year."
Dr Edwards, North London

"We would like to say a massive thank you for your hard work during the 2 day assessment. We are so grateful and highly impressed with your level of knowledge, confidence, professionalism as well as the kindness and respect shown to our family. Now, we really believe there is light at the end of the tunnel."
