SOFFI® Hybrid Expanded Course

New in 2023! We have heard you and created a Hybrid course that expands the amount of time spent on assessment and intervention practice for SOFFI®! The first eight modules are online as recorded videos, the same as our SOFFI® Online Certificate Course. These are the foundational modules. After completing these modules, you will attend the remaining modules LIVE with Dr. Ross. The two days in-person focus on a short review of the foundational material related to infant communication, followed by assessment and intervention strategies. The content is the same with the exception of multiple case studies designed to encourage practice with all of the concepts. Small group work and video vignettes are used to help the learner fully understand the concepts and know when and how to use the interventions. Our first live two-day offering of this Hybrid course will be in Phoenix, Arizona on February 25 and 26, 2023.

We will also hold hybrid events in Denver in May and San Antonio in September. Each course will open for registration once the previous course has completed.
