Welcome to The Global Training Initiative, a series of FREE online workshops. Our vision is to raise the bar of excellence for therapists and teachers around the world by providing training opportunities and the sharing of evidence based clinical practices. Our goal is to provide training workshops to non-profit organizations who service children with special needs, and who would not otherwise be able to access specialised training services.

Dr Donia Fahim and her team at Educational and Therapeutic Spaces Ltd will be planning and coordinating the sessions. The presenters who have all kindly volunteered are all leading experts in their field.
