Participants will learn a new, effective teaching technique using nonverbal communication to help children in their care, as well as have an opportunity to meet and connect with fellow providers from throughout the five-county area.
The cost of $10 includes lunch and 4.5 training hours. Register by midnight Sept. 21. Send checks to Sourcewell, Attn.: Michelle Tautges, PO Box 219, Staples, MN 56479.
