"I just took my first course, "Social Skills for Students on the Autism Spectrum." I have many students on the Autism spectrum and have already started using some of the interventions from the course. My PT sessions have been much smoother and I find that I have changed how I interact with them. Thank you!"
"Thank you for these fantastic courses that continue to help me become a better therapist to my students, their families, and the staff I work with! Despite many years in the field these courses are helping me to expand my knowledge base, see things from different perspectives, and grow as a therapist."
