Sanity School® Certification Program
Professional Training for Established Professionals Who Support Families of Complex Kids
The Sanity School® Certification Program (SSCP) provides continuing education for a wide range of professionals -- coaches, therapists, educators, psychologists, nurses, and more -- to become trained and certified in a proven behavior training program for parents and educators that is grounded in the principles of professional coaching. Certified professionals may pursue an annual license that allows them to teach the Sanity School® course in local communities.
With SSCP, professionals from around the globe are trained in foundational coaching skills -- the coach-approach to parenting and educating complex kids. SSCP is not a coach training program, per se. Rather, providers come together in a unique, collaborative community to learn the Impact Model and the nuances of using coaching skills to empower complex kids and their families.
Professionals participate in SSCP to enhance their learning and expand their knowledge base for three primary reasons:
1) For therapists and other medical or educational professionals, their purpose is to learn foundational principles and tools from professional coaching.
2) For professional coaches, their purpose is to expand their training and gain a foundational, working knowledge of neurodiversity-inclusion in coaching.
3) Still other professionals take the program so they can deliver Sanity School® -- an established, evidence-based BPT (behavior parent training) curriculum -- live in their local communities.
Certified Sanity School® trainers are eligible to purchase a license to deliver Sanity School® independently, collaborate with another professional to share a license, or work as a trainer under an existing license.
SSCP meets the needs of children by providing professionals with a quality curriculum that is ready for immediate implementation, as well as administrative support for delivery, expanding access to effective training for parents and educators.
The Sanity School® Certification Program was recognized as an Innovative Program by CHADD in 2018, just one year after the Sanity School® Behavior Management Training Program was recognized as an Innovative Program by CHADD in 2017. The program has been approved for 32 Continuing Coach Education (CCE) hours for the International Coach Federation (ICF).
