“Thank you for such an enthralling evening. I have been studying and working with individuals with autism for the last fifteen years and it was a pleasure to listen to a complex condition delivered in a manageable and informative way.” Mrs M J Bailey
“I am a mum of 6 children 3 of which are autistic, your course has helped me a lot tonight, what instantly jumped out at me was the information of different pregnancy, my 3 autistic children each had growth issues during my pregnancies. The information on mirroring jumped out also, we have recently started copying and joining in with our 3 year old who is autistic and non verbal, we jump up and down with him when he is excited, we join in lining cars up, and when he feels things like grass and bark on trees since doing so we have noticed he has began to copy our behaviours.” Lindsey R
