The importance of checking credentials
I am pleased to see that you have now had several books published since we last met. I am sure they must be helping to improve outcomes for children like my John, as did your Multisensory Intervention with him back in 2008. John is now more than half way through his second year at UWE and very much at home there. He is so much more confident now about all sorts of situations that he could not have handled a few years ago so thank you so much for everything you did for him!
