"I loved how thoroughly Jennifer addressed each sensory issue and strategies to help teachers support these children in the classroom. I particularly liked part 3 where Jennifer discussed and gave examples of a number of visuals that would work in the classroom also. This is very beneficial to me as a primary school teacher."
"This course is very suitable for people who are working with children with Autism."
"I got a much better insight into all the differences between the sensitivities of a child. I could see than in some of the kids I work with were hypersensitive for some and hypo sensitive for others, I never really realised that they could be mixed. I feel that I new have a much better understanding of some of the kids in my class."
"Being a primary school teacher, I have worked with a number of children with ASD throughout the years. However, as a result of this course I feel I have a much better understanding of children with ASD. I learned many new strategies and supports that can be set up in my classroom to help support."
