I highly recommend Julia's work and the services she provides

I have a recently diagnosed autistic child. Although prior to his diagnoses he displayed some challenging behaviours. Julia gave me insights to help me understand my son's behaviour, how to understand and best support him. So life at home is now much easier and I can enjoy life with my son.
Her approach is fresh progressive and child centred. She is so wise and down to earth some of her advice not only made sense but is life changing and made me reassess my own thought processes and attitude to parenting and life in general....

 ...The most important aspect for me is seeing the strengths my child has and working with those to build in his skills. Julia gave me step by step support for different situations that my child and I found difficult as well as
 time, effort, understanding, and care beyond expectation. I highly recommend her work and the services she provides

These simply stunning resources are the product of combining the unbelievably creative natural talent and inspiring imagination of the designer, with a next level understanding of neurobiological function and developmental difference and diversity across the age and ability spectrum. Thank you for this incredibly thought provoking activity pack. These resources will be wonderful for teaching young people about their truly unique brains   Stephanie Anderson, Creative Intergrative Psychotherapist.

These resources are breathtakingly beautiful! They are well designed; easy to use and understand; and brilliant at helping all people to understand neuro diversity... This should be compulsory learning for primary age children so that the spectrum of neuro diversity can be understood and accepted from a young age... It's about time we started celebrating our differences rather than ostracising those who don't "fit" the "normal" mould. Well done on producing this amazing material ♥ EA

I’ve just downloaded my pack. These resources are unique. I’ve never seen anything like them before. They are going to be invaluable in engaging children and helping them learn about their own unique brain wiring.
