John continues his trip on the west coast with two stops in California. This past Friday, John was at the West San Gabriel SELPA in Alhambra and today he is at the Southwest SELPA in Rondo Beach, California. He is training on the new version of the CANS specifically designed for use in schools! This version was developed in collaboration with Rebecca Cole and the school psychologists from both SELPA locations under a grant from the California Board of Education.

The CANS-EI focuses on 5 core domains to best reflect the strengths and needs of the child/youth in and out of the classroom. To learn more about the CANS-EI and how it can work for your school, contact John Lyons at or April Fernando at
