So excited to have [sensory] explained so concisely. I was aware of many of these things intuitively but find it difficult to explain to my hubby [regarding our kids whose behavior he often saw as disrespectful and bad]…Also at my school I see many children who are in time out at lunch who are being punished because of sensory needs and executive function challenges…I feel much more confident to advocate and work with staff to create win win opportunities for students and staff… I feel like I have a better understanding to support kids in their classes.

As a pediatric massage & touch therapist specializing in ASD, SPD & ADHD, this is the most complete and comprehensive training I have undertaken specific to my field.   The course is professional from beginning to end.   How the course is designed, the true life scenarios, the down to Earth explanations all work together for the learner to feel successful, knowledgeable and, empowered in their learning.  The program handouts are clear, concise, and informative.   I know this will elevate my clinic and practical skills and best of all, benefit the children and families that I work with to improve their quality of life.  Thank you to Alisha and team, it truly is an amazing course and I’m grateful I found it.

These are the most helpful resources I have ever come across!

The tremendous, relentless stress that used to be our “dinnertime” fell off like a weight of world off my shoulders. My husband says he got his wife back, and I started seeing my precious child smile and laugh and be goofy more often than ever. And for that alone – I am eternally thankful to you, dear Alisha. Thank you for your website and all the advice – they were the most helpful resources I’ve ever come across.

So much more understanding!

I am really thankful to be understanding my kids better and being able to see some of their more annoying (to me) struggles from a completely different perspective!  It explains a lot of the struggles and odd things my kids do!
