What people say that have been on this training

“Wow! I loved the section on PDA – it was such an eye opener for me as I have been struggling with a child in my class for such a long time and couldn’t quite put my finger on why they were behaving this way. I really do have ‘hope’ now and what strategies I can use to support this child. Thank you so much Emma!”

Teacher from a specialist setting, Chorley
“Thank you for giving me ideas on what I can do with the child I support – it finally makes sense and I can see why the child I support is so frustrated!’

One-to-one support Teaching assistant, Preston
“I loved your stories of children you have worked with Emma – it really puts into perspective the amount of different ways that you can support children that suffer with both anxiety and autism! I highly recommend this course for anyone that supports a child on the autistic spectrum!”
