The PALS content has been developed in two formats for delivery by trainers.

    1. The PALS Full Session is a 5 ½ to 6 hour training.
    2. A second format divides the content between two sessions designed to be delivered over 1-4 weeks. PALS Session 1 and Session 2 are 2 ½ to 3 hour sessions and have an enrichment activity added to engage with ECE providers with key concepts between sessions.
    3. A third format supports providers in delivering PALS as a Virtual Training. Five sessions between 60 and 90 minutes long with activities tailored to virtual learning platforms are available. Four content exercises are suggested for asynchronous completion between sessions. A trainer support document provides suggestions and more details on the virtual format.

Suggested technical assistance ideas are also provided for trainers.

The PALS curriculum has been updated as of June 2020.
