Bonnie’s creativity, effectiveness and dedication to students is obvious to all who examine her materials–including some rather large school districts. I highly recommend Bonnie’s materials for she is a gifted educational therapist whose expertise makes a difference with hundreds (if not thousands) of students.
Very enjoyable and engaging course that teaches about the learning styles of AS students and provides strategies to meet their learning needs. Wonderful and interesting video clips with inspirational people and amazing insights into Autism and very comprehensive content including sensory issues, the brain and visual learning as well as the ipad as a valuable learning and communication tool for AS students.
I found this to be one of the most useful PD courses I have done. There was much to recommend it: Karina was an excellent tutor, taking time to answer all questions and respond to comments; the content included a good mix of modes – I particularly found the video content inspiring. I also liked that it included lots of practical strategies, suitable for real classrooms.
Your ADHD strategies help build my kids self-esteem up. Doing the activities in short segments has been such a help! Short quick activities with lots of 15 second to 30 second breaks, it works! You can get so much done in an hour. They read, take notes, learn English and math. One of the best parts is that I can use your strategies with all of my kids. Thank you so much!
I participated in the Autism education course recently and found it to be enlightening and very helpful in a practical way. As a result I find myself much better equipped to manage and understand some of the issues that are likely to arise in our classroom every day. I would recommend it highly to all teachers in Elementary, Middle and High schools who want to feel confidant and informed about this very complicated condition.
