"This course exceeded my expectations with regards to the information and approach. Jonathan presented his wealth of knowledge in an approachable way. By the end of the course you could not help but respect him as a therapist and know his desire to make a difference in the pediatric population. I hope to see his name as an instructor for other courses in the future."
