What others are saying:
"The impact of implementing the Get Ready to Learn Program across our entire district with students with significant disabilities ages 3-21 over the past year has had tremendous results in decreasing behaviors that interfere with learning and increasing appropriate behaviors to enhance each students ability to learn more effectively. Teachers, administrators, students and parents have reported significant changes in both the classroom environment as well as student performance. Parents are reporting that their children are reacting to their environment in ways they haven't demonstrated in the past. At the onset of the program we knew that the daily implementation of this movement program would have a positive impact on student progress but the data is reporting gains beyond our original expectations." -Barbara Joseph Deputy Superintendent NYC Department of Education, Citywide Programs D 75
This was by far the best course that I have attended in the last several years. "Anne's wealth of information, presentation style and the interactive nature of the class was so engaging. I came with one particular child in mind and I am leaving with ideas of how to integrate strategies with my entire caseload. I only wish the course was longer."
"Absolutely wonderful course! I learned so much that I can start doing right away with my students and even with the adults that I teach yoga to. Anne is a great speaker with a wonderful presence, so knowledgeable and really able to coordinate OT and yoga seamlessly to help her students. I highly recommend this course to help your students/clients as well as yourself."
"This course exceeded all of my expectations. I feel like I can start to use these techniques immediately in practice and now understand "why" as well as "how to help my clients."
