Testimonials

“Jodie worked as home/school senior ABA tutor with my twin boys for over 2 years. Having Jodie as a part of our team was pleasure. She is very professional, trustworthy and knowledgable/skilled. She has did great job with both of my boys who are on different parts of ASD spectrum and became a key part of their development/progress. Apart from being highly skilled and hard working she is also very kind and it was an absolute joy having her as therapist. Both my children and us (parents) loved having her around. She has always put extra effort to overcome any obstacles and find solutions to any issues my children encountered. She also has great communication skills and was able to help us bridge the gap between home programme and boys school. She has also acted as school shadow and provided training to the mainstream school stuff. Our family has moved to another country 2 years ago but we fondly remember Jodie and miss having her as part of our family life”. Ana, Mother of Autistic Twin boys.

“Working alongside Jodie was a rewarding and beneficial experience,she provided specialist support and applied many different strategies that helped provide a stable, nurturing environment for children”.
