Teacher-Child Interaction Training (TCIT-U) 2019

Teacher-Child Interaction Training (TCIT-U) 2019

Illinois Children’s Healthcare Foundation (ILCHF) is partnering with LearnVentures, LLC and Loyola University, Chicago to bring a promising approach to strengthening teachers’ positive impact on the social-emotional and behavioral learning of young children in their classrooms to Illinois.

Teacher-Child Interaction Training – Universal (TCIT-U) is a professional development program for teachers and classroom support staff of children pre-K through 2nd grade that strengthens teachers’ positive relationship and classroom management skills through a sustainable “train-the-trainer” approach. TCIT-U is adapted from Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), a widely used and extensively researched intervention for children 2-7 years old with disruptive behavior problems. LearnVentures, LLC are the developers of the model and they will be providing the training.

We are looking for one school district from the following counties to participate during the 2019-2020 school year: Boone, Cook, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, LaSalle, Lake, McHenry, or Will.  After one initial year-long cohort we anticipate bringing on additional districts in subsequent years.

The project will start in May of 2019 and be implemented during the 2019-2020 school year. In addition to funding the training costs of approximately $45,000, we are offering a $5,000 stipend to the selected school district to support the cost of participation.

Please see below for further information about the TCIT-U model, the criteria for participation, and instructions for submitting a brief application. Applications are due January 4th, 2019.
