WHAT WE DO

Do2learn provides thousands of free pages with social skills and behavioral regulation activities and guidance, learning songs and games, communication cards, academic material, and transition guides for employment and life skills. In addition, we offer premier products including View2do, JobTIPS, FACELAND, books, and apps for purchase.

OUR APPROACH

We believe that simply telling busy teachers, parents, and professionals what they should be doing is not enough.  Within each topic, we provide the hands-on resources needed to implement our suggestions.  If we explain how to devise a visual communication system using picture cards, we provide free cards to get you started. When we present the Teacher Toolbox on how to adapt a classroom for children with special needs, we provide resources for behavior management plans, literacy tools, and the materials to create everything in your classroom. 

Our approach is to use the latest technology and expert guidance to create innovative and usable solutions. 

WHO WE ARE

Do2Learn began in 1996 through a National Institutes of Health Small Business Innovative Research grant.  Our team searches out the most talented and creative teachers and clinicians across the world.  These gifted individuals work with our technical experts to transfer their knowledge into formats that we can make available to you.  

Since beginning, we have grown into a world-wide resource with over 17 million hits a month. While based in North Carolina and Florida, approximately half of our users are from outside of the U.S.  Thousands of sites link to us and we can be easily found on most search engines using topics such as ‘picture cards’, ‘facial expressions’, and ‘job tips’.  We hope you find our resources helpful and pass on our link to others.

Presentation

The Centre for Policy on Ageing, established in 1947 by the Nuffield Foundation, has a long and distinguished record as an independent charity promoting the interests of older people through research, policy analysis and the dissemination of information.

The Centre aims to raise awareness of issues around all aspects of ageing and to support good practice. Its overarching focus is to discover and advocate what older people themselves want and need. 

An important and unique aspect of the Centre’s work is to act as a hub to encourage the creative exchange of thinking and information on ageing issues. A key element of this work is making knowledge on ageing issues widely accessible to share learning and underpin policy initiatives to support older people. CPA collaborates with national and local government, practitioners, the academic community, voluntary groups and older people to sustain a network of learning around ageing. 

Information Service – The Centre’s information experts collect, summarise and disseminate research evidence and good practice for users in all sectors through a unique group of online databases and customised services. CPA has built up an unrivalled international reference collection that is a vital source of knowledge on ageing issues and it is currently the only organisation in the UK systematically collating this data. Reliable information is essential to underpin more effective ways of working, making the most of funds to support an ageing population. 

Policy and Research – CPA's policy and research work covers a broad range of issues having an impact on ageing and old age, including health and social services, residential and community care, living arrangements, financial inclusion, independent living, citizenship, and rights and risk. In particular it is concerned with the analysis of public policy as it affects older people, research into related issues and the promotion of good practice in service design and provision. The Centre has a reputation for innovative thinking and backing pioneering work.

Publishing – CPA Publishing produces books, reports, briefing papers, seminar papers, codes of practice, occasional papers and selected reference titles from the Information Service. 

Networks – The Centre works in partnership to influence policy and encourage debate on issues affecting older people. It is engaged with many statutory and voluntary groups concerned with older people and contributes to advisory groups, expert working parties and forums on a diverse array of issues.

Conferences, workshops and seminars - CPA brings together people from different backgrounds to discuss topical issues in small and informal settings -the involvement of older people in influencing policy development is one of the Centre's primary objectives."
