A clear insight in to a new way of thinking and working with children within this spectrum. Fascinating.....

by Sally May

Dr Grant's down to earth teaching style, for me, increased my interest of working with children who have Autism, and peaked my interest in obtaining certification. Initially, when I saw the topic on the agenda it was going to be one of the last courses I viewed. However, I am a Missouri State graduate also, so I selected Dr Grant first. Im amazed with the tools and increased confidence I walked away with after only one hour! The interview questions, for me, covered the basics perfectly with feedback that caused me to end an hour session feeling enriched. ***** 5 stars for sure. I appreciate Dr Grants humility and I too could be a professional participant in training :)
