Teacher Child Interaction Training

 

TCIT is an innovative teacher training program offering teachers in-the-moment coaching to foster children's social, emotional, and early academic skills.  With the teachers' support, students will become more cooperative, patient, focused, attentive, calm, and confident. Teachers will learn evidence-based skills to manage disruptive classroom behaviors so they can focus on what they love best - teaching. The TCIT program includes classroom assessment of strengths and goals, teacher workshops, and in-the-moment classroom coaching.   TCIT is based largely on Parent Child Interaction Therapy, which has been extensively researched and proven to decrease children's disruptive behaviors and strengthen attachment.
