"Aarathy was really good taking time to explain and answer questions as we went along.

I found her to be really helpful and took the time to make you feel comfortable.

The level of attention and feedback I received during the training was excellent.

The role play was very good, [it] helps put things into place. The training is very intense and a lot to take on board for two days but again when you get down to role play it all becomes easier."

Data Recording

"I found the practical part of the course extremely helpful as it was great to put the theory into practice. I was very happy with the attention and feedback that I received... there was plenty of one on one attention.

I thought that is was a good mix of theory and practical. The practical gave me a feeling for what it would be like to be a therapist and it confirmed to me that I would enjoy working in this field and this will also complement [my degree].

The information that was presented was comprehensive. There was a massive amount of information that was conveyed but it was presented well. I felt comfortable that I could ask questions at any time if I was not clear on any of the information that was presented.

I found the trainer to be warm and engaging in manner. She was helpful and had excellent knowledge of the information covered in the course. I found her to be very approachable and it was obvious that she is passionate about the work that she does with the children she works with."

This workshop is hands on!

This is not JUST about theory!

You will engage in plenty of role play and receive feedback throughout the workshop to ensure you learn practical skills to equip you to work effectively on ABA programs. 

This is NOT a large conference packed with trainees and name badges!

We keep the groups small and intimate. We encourage discussion of all the concepts, give plenty of examples and ensure you have the opportunity for adequate practise of all the practical skills.

"Aarathy was very informative and supportive. I felt encouraged and grew interest in the ABA field more and more as she trained me.

The biggest positive would be the better understanding of child's actions and behaviours in terms of what may be the cause and how I can help to assist her in behaving more appropriately.

I am most looking forward to seeing the child develop and grow with the help I can provide with the skills I learnt.

I think there is a very good balance in the training. I liked the interactions between the trainer, to be able to ask and verify the things which were not so clear. "
