Do You Want To Learn More About Autism?

 

“I recently attended an Autism Professional Development in Floreat. I have already used some of the techniques with success. The most successful and useful has been my new sensory box. These contained items have been used by some of our children with Autism. Such a great idea!!! Many thanks for your awesome training!”
