What People Have Said About Our Live Webcasts
"Thank you so much. My child was only diagnosed a year ago and this is the first real self-education I have done for myself to try and understand him more. I learnt so much. "
"Thanks so much for an amazing day of practical learnings. I especially thank you on behalf of my recently diagnosed 6-year-old son for how this will help me to help him, as well as sharing many learnings with his teachers."
"I really enjoyed watching the course. Great presentation. Really engaging. The information on some of the measurement tools for criteria A was particularly valuable and is exactly what I was looking to help with diagnosis in the higher functioning kids where the ADOS, and CARS don’t give diagnostic clarity. Thank you."
"I wanted to say a huge thank you for the emotion management for children and adolescents with Autism course last week. It was truly enlightening and empowering. As a parent of an pre-teen with Aspergers it has felt a very long, lonely and often exhausting journey. Michelle and Tony so eloquently explained so many manifestations and turned so many previously thought of as impossible to deal with traits into something so much more positive and manageable. I just wanted to say a huge thank you and I really look forward to your next event."
"Thanks so much Michelle and Tony for another insightful workshop. I look forward to seeing you live when you can travel again. You are both so easy to listen to and I appreciate the examples that you share with humour."
"My 9-year-old daughter has just been diagnosed with autism level one & generalised anxiety disorder and struggles with sleep issues, meltdowns, school refusal, anger, sensory overwhelm etc. I have honestly struggled to find that genuine, down to earth practical advice that this teaching has given me. It has changed the way to see my child’s behaviours & in turn the way I respond to them. I feel very blessed to have this. Thank you."
"It was beautifully paced and presented... the slides will be so valuable as resources. Your anecdotes are fantastic, we relate so strongly to the child/parents, and they made the topic very real and thought provoking. You presented it from all angles to promote such great understanding."
I've just finished watching Michelle and Tony's presentation on girls and women on the spectrum and wanted to send a huge thank-you. The session was detailed and informative and they're lovely presenters. I just wish I could pop in and chat to them!
"Your resources have been life-changing for us as parents and for our family. We are both physicians, my wife a paediatrician, and never have we learned as much as we have learned about this subject than what we have learned from you."
"I'm now working my way through the second Masterclass I have ordered. And today I ran across a quote that describes my experience as I listen. It references books but is no less descriptive of the 2 trainings. If I one day author material on autism, I hope it resonates in the same way. By Alfred Kazin, “Every book I read re-stocked my mind with those great friends… They came into my life proud and compassionate, recognizing me by a secret sign, whispering through subterranean channels of sympathy." ."
