ECCAO©: Meet Our Observers!

ECCAO wants to give parents/caregivers the opportunity to get to know a little more about the observers who may be in contact with your child.  The following individuals are well trained and qualified by Dr. Michael Dwyer of Baldwin Wallace University, the creator of this program.  They are equipped with the skills and knowledge to observe your children in the classroom and to make observations within your home.  These research assistants are all current or former students of Baldwin Wallace University who are continually doing research in the area of child violence. Many have taken courses to delve deeper into this area of interest.  All are committed to working on behalf of your children!  For more information, please Contact Us.
