Workshops, Webinars, Institutes, and Online Learning

ECAC provides free workshops and training opportunities for parents on a variety of healthcare related topics.  Each is designed to give you the information you need to become your child’s best advocate!  Our Family-to-Family Healthcare Program also provides a number of trainings designed to assist professionals working with parents.

  • Workshops usually last 1 – 3 hours and are typically co-sponsored with a local organization.  Our “in-person” parent education staff brings materials, conducts the workshop and answers questions from parents and professionals
  • Webinars are “electronic” workshops and conducted using our toll-free conference line and webinar service.  Sessions typically last about 1 hour. Participants log in and participate in the webinar from the comfort of their home or office.  For your convenience we are also working hard to archive the webinars so that they can be viewed at any time.
  • Institutes are typically comprehensive 5-6 hour trainings and include all materials and lunch.
  • Online Learning provides you with an opportunity to participate in an ECAC workshop at your own pace.
