We are proud to announce that we are approved by the New York State Education Department to offer required training in the NYS Dignity for All Students Act (DASA) for professionals applying for certificates or licensure, including, but not limited to classroom teachers and assistants, school counselors, school psychologists, school social workers, school administrators or supervisors, and superintendents of schools.  The DASA is NY legislation developed to afford all students in public schools an environment free from harassment, bullying and discrimination.  This training is designed to enhance understanding of diversity and multi-cultural environments and examine personal biases.


Presented by Adriane Maier, Ph.D. BCBA-D, LMHC, this training will teach participants about bullying, cyberbullying, harassment and discrimination as well as indicators, early warning signs, prevention and reporting procedures. Group activities and supporting video will be utilized to sensitize participants to the experiences of specific populations and emphasize how school climate and culture have an impact on student achievement and behavior.
