Oregon Intervention System (OIS)
Nate provides both private and county OIS sessions. As an IF-level instructor, he can tailor each participant's needs to the course, and follow-up with further support in utilizing the OIS principles. OIS is often provided free-of-charge to families, so contact your county developmental disability worker!
OIS is a two-day workshop and a certification course. Nate also provides physical refreshers.
OIS for private agencies and foster providers is also available. Contact Nate at the information at the top of the page for more information.
