WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT MEG'S TRAININGS
"As a pediatric occupational therapist, I know how foundational play skills are, and how many kiddos with ASD struggle with them. While I have read numerous amounts of studies and research on the topic, I felt like I was always missing the treatment intervention piece. Now, instead of feeling anxious about this, I feel much more able to see where a kid is currently functioning, and how I can build off of their already mastered skills. This training is great for anyone teaching play, to any age, at any developmental level" - Duke Peltier, OTRL
"Meg has taken a huge amount of research, knowledge and experience and condensed it into a course that is accessible, practical and just makes sense. I highly recommend this course to any OT working with young people with autism. You will not only walk away with explicit strategies and interventions but also a much deeper and useful understanding of autism learning styles and how this informs our practice. " - Christine Bagnall, OT (Australia)
"I cannot express enough how fervently I feel about practitioners starting this course and their ability to feel confident in working with individuals with autism!" - Stephanie Kovaks, OTR/L (Illinois)
This was a really thorough course that went through all the basics of teaching social play to kids with autism. Would definitely recommend it to others looking to improve their practice! Stephanie Clements (MOT, USYD)
