"This was my 4th course with Therapy Advance. I love the flexibility in completing the courses. It is self paced with plenty of time to complete all of the requirements. Despite many years experience in the field, these courses continue to enhance my knowledge and further develop my skills as a therapist. I enjoy the courses and find the reading and assignments interesting and engaging!!"

"This course was so helpful for providing information for evaluations and treatment for children with CAS. This is one of the first textbooks I read that actually told me how to do therapy with this population. I have gained so much knowledge that I can start applying to my job right away. And the instructor was always available for questions."
"I just wanted to say that this was one of the best professional development courses I have taken. Often times, the professional development offered by my district has nothing to do with my field. This was so refreshing and beneficial for my students!" - Megan, SLP
"I have now taken a few courses on Therapy Advanced Courses and every time I finish I look forward to starting the next course. The courses are relevant to what I do with students on a daily basis and continue to help me grow as an SLP. I feel more confident in many areas of the profession and am liking the updated more current information I am learning." - Jayna, SLP
"This course connected research with practice. I was able to apply what I learned right into therapy just days later. It was informative and the textbook will continue to be a valuable resource for me when assessing and treating CAS." -Lauren, SLP
"I took this course in order to enhance my professional knowledge base but also to earn credits in order to advance on my school district's pay scale. I am so happy to have had the opportunity to take a class that was directly aligned with the information I need to be a successful school based clinician. The course was directly related to my professional practice and I could implement the knowledge I was gaining immediately. The course was easy to navigate and I love that it is self-paced. I highly recommend Therapy Advance Courses." - Liz, SLP
