The first three to five years of a child’s life are filled with critical developmental periods that impact a child through adolescence and adulthood. Understanding typical developmental milestones is not only key for healthcare professionals, but for parents and community members as well. Identifying and recognizing these milestones is the first step in fostering your child’s development. At Assential Therapies Inc., we believe in educating and empowering our community by sharing our knowledge and expertise in infant child development.  We provide workshops for parents, physicians, caregivers, professionals, daycare workers, and family members in our community who are interested in learning. 

Our workshops are currently held virtually, allowing community members to attend from the comfort of their home or workplace. Please email us at if you would like to schedule a workshop for your organization.

Community Workshops

Designed for the purpose of education and creating community awareness. We believe that the community awareness leads to early identification and intervention of developmental issues. These trainings are designed for parents, family members, daycare professionals, preschool teachers, nurses, physician assistants, and healthcare support professionals.

We offer “Hours of Training” certificates for these workshops.  If your daycare, school, church, or organization would like a presentation,  please call Smita Joshi, at (847) 699-9757, or email: to schedule. Workshops are free when open to the community or there is a small charge for professionals or staff trainings. 

Professional Trainings

IL Early intervention continuing education credits will be provided at the end of these trainings.
