|We’ve been working with Amy for nearly two years now, and the results in my son have been remarkable. After 9 months, he learned to swim – at age 11 – and his handwriting has improved dramatically, as well as his ability to manage motor planning for all sorts of fine and gross motor skills. I now understand better how to spot issues and which exercises and approaches to use to help bring him into physical and emotional alignment. Amy’s guidance, whether in person or virtually, has been a balm in an otherwise tough stretch of parenting a child with special needs. She’s made a huge difference in giving my son, and me, tools we can use so he has a more meaningful and balanced life. I cannot recommend Amy highly enough to other parents who have a child with various issues who needs support and an individually-designed approach that is flexible and adaptive to the child. Amy’s amazing!|
Course Participant testimonial
|“…The three days I spent with Amy learning the content, applying the content and working through questions and hypothetical scenarios was a learning experience I would highly recommend. |
Amy is extremely knowledgeable in the content of the course and can teach the tenets with ease. However, when she was working with the group, she also made everything accessible to all of the adult learners in the room. She taught a variety of individuals within that one group (parents in fields unrelated to education, adults that were attending for their own needs and others of us in the field of education). Her approach to the course was incredibly practical, adjustable and applicable for everyone in attendance.”
