The Incredible Years® Series Interventions for Teachers
The Incredible Years® early intervention programs for teachers are delivered by group leaders to groups of teachers/childcare providers depending on children’s age range and needs. The programs aim to provide educators with skills to effectively manage classrooms and promote children’s resilience, social and emotional skills, and academic competence.
Training workshops to equip group leaders with the skills needed to deliver the programs are purchased separately from the program sets below.
