These are just some of the comments I have received about this course and I love hearing them. As an Occupational Therapist (OT), my career has focused on helping children to build the solid foundations they need to reach their potential. By understanding these solid foundational skills such as sensory processing, motor skills and self-regulation, you will be able to support the children you work with to develop their learning in the school environment.
As Educators and SNA's, you spend large amounts of time every day with these children where everyday opportunities can be used to build positive learning experiences.
Lots of the practical strategies discussed are suitable for the school and home environment.
After completing this course, you will feel more confident in understanding the underlying skills necessary for school-based tasks such as handwriting, organising belongings and paying attention. With this understanding, comes an increased ability to identify possible difficulties and put strategies in place immediately that can help support a child's participation and learning in the classroom.
The best intervention is done through everyday opportunities as they arise in a child's natural environment. By using this time to help build solid foundational skills, it will benefit a child not only now but when they are a teenager and adult.

I really loved this course...brilliant content and speakers..a really fabulous way to build on knowledge and learn new tips and insights..thank you
This was a very well presented, informative course which was enhanced by the guest presenters.
This course was very informative and I really enjoyed it. Going forward I will use some of the strategies with the children I work with and I believe this will help them a lot I would recommend this course.
The course was incredibly informative right from the first module! I appreciate the manageable 'chunks' of videos presented and the option to browse the additional resources attached below each module segment. A fabulous course and very beneficial to parents and anyone working with children.
I am a parent of child with additional needs and I'm also training to be an SNA, so I am coming at this course from two different sides. I find Jess' energy brilliant and motivating. The detail in the course gives great insight in to the how and why behind different activities.
As a parent, I would very very strongly recommend this course (I wish I did it 3 years ago) - especially if you are not getting regular appointments from your service provider - this course will provide you with so much information that you will be able to fill the gaps between appointments with activities and be confident in what you are doing is helping your child.
As an SNA in training this is going to make my job so much easier as I will understand the difficulties the child I'm working with may have and be able to make changes that can have a big impact on their school day.
I love the format as I can come and go when it suits, play back sections, try activities out at home and then move on to the next section - as a busy Mam that is really important to me.
