Our Outreach and Community Education program at Cincinnati Children's works closely with community committees and organizations to foster partnerships, initiate education about developmental and behavioral problems and disorders, and to improve services and resources.
Outreach and Community Education is active at the local, state, and national level in identifying resources and best practices. We provide training and community education to individuals with developmental and behavioral needs, families, and service providers throughout the region. The division is a leader in improving services and support through education, collaboration, and other advocacy efforts in areas such as access to appropriate health care, transportation, emergency planning, community accessibility, and recreation. Staff members are active on boards and committees of disability organizations and local and statewide groups that target the planning and advocacy needs of the broader community.
Outreach and Community Education is located in the Division of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics.
Outreach and Community Education offers a variety of programs, including:
- Advocacy programs that work with and support other community agencies
- Educational options ranging from classes and seminars to professional training
- Family support and educational programs for families with children who are experiencing cognitive, behavioral and physical challenges
