THE INSTITUTE

CBI of Miami

Behavioral problems and mental disorders affect 10% to 20% of children and adolescents worldwide.

Child Behavior Institute of Miami was created to offer consulting and psychoeducational information to families, educators and mental health professionals around the globe.

Our online educational programs are designed to educators, mental health professionals, doctors, psychologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists and families of children with behavioral problems and special needs.

“Mental health professionals, teachers and families need psychoeducational information that could help in treatment, curricular adaptation and educational inclusion of students with special needs. 

I am very happy with the opportunity to offer CBI of Miami’s online courses worldwide.”
