What Teachers say about

"It's a great resource for teachers. We are getting such positive feedback from parents of kids we are working with this year. Parents are impressed with the way their programmes have been specifically tailored to their child’s needs. We developed each child’s programme based on the information and programmes from Karen’s membership site."
Principal of a Dublin school
"Karen is very compelling, very experienced and I love her holistic approach to overcoming difficulties. I also love that she is not focused on labels and is willing to look closely at children's individual needs. The videos are very helpful to inform planning for SEN children in our school. They have given us new ideas and most of all they have given us a new way of thinking about how we plan for SEN in our school."
Principal of a Co. Dublin school

  • Understand how techniques such as sound therapy can develop the child’s speech, language and sensory skills quickly and easily
