“It was all you promised – practical, fast moving, fun and motivational. You have a great understanding of ASD and a true talent for sharing your knowledge and passion in a way we can relate to”
“My son’s teacher said it’s the best inservice she has ever had! She has had an epiphany! She understands it all so much better. She has some great ideas for the aide! She feels empowered and inspired! This is so great for all her future students too”
“I think perhaps I’ve just been struggling along trying to find my way not knowing where to start. I felt so well informed when I left the presentation, I learnt so much”
“I spent a lot of the day reflecting on my own teaching practise and came out of the workshop full of what is really just best teaching practise for all children, not just kids on the spectrum. You are a wonderful presenter and are a brilliant advocate for these children”
