  1. Sue Hammerich

    Outstanding – I couldn’t stop watching it! The information was well presented and immediately applicable in the clinic. I highly recommend it.

  2. Maggie Marohl

    I’m incredibly happy with my course and the assistance I received when signing up for it. My only downfall was being unable to print the manual therefore I have minimal to no notes available to reference back to.

  3. Mary Newell OTR/L,CHT

    packed with useful information. Presenter was excellent.
