What others are saying:
"Nina did an outstanding job presenting the practice of feeding. Not only am I an OT, but I am also a mother of a child with special needs. I learned so much fantastic material. Thank you so much for providing such great information that will positively influence my professional and personal career."
"Very informative, great presentation. Ideas and strategies to use immediately in therapy. Would be interested in other seminars by Nina. Extremely knowledgeable!!"
"This course really helped me, as a clinician, understand my children more and how to work with their parents. Loved this course. I will be able to apply the info I learned to my work environment. The 'missing piece' to my treatment approach."
"I have been to many different feeding conferences. I loved Nina Johanson's presentation. She takes a very holistic approach to treatment and looks at every aspect of the child and family to treat and ensure success. Well done! I would recommend this course to everyone."-Judy Klingensmith
"Nina was a great presenter. I learned more in two days than I did in two years of graduate school. The presentation was well balanced with videos, live hands on learning and lecture. I have learned so many great therapy ideas as well as parent training advice. Many seminars leave the parent out, but they are the biggest piece in a child's life; if missing there is no progress. I loved this seminar, and would see her present again on any topic." Janelle Hiester
