Supported Learning

When I first started mentoring with Claudia Allen in 2012, Claudia warned me it would take me two years to learn how to use her model. I was rather offended at first but then I realized how much learning was required to understand the concepts in her model of how the brain progressively processes information. Claudia patiently put up with my pesky questions on the condition that I would pay it forward and help other clinicians learn to use her model. I am eager to help you with your questions. Let's work together to achieve better clinical outcomes for the people we serve.
