    Hi Mandy,

    I went to the therapies in schools seminar in Framingham MA in Nov 2013. It was a great seminar. There was a speaker that presented on Brain gym. I need her name, website, anything that I can have to get information regarding a metronome song she did re “Jack and Jill”. Is there any information you can send me. I am happy to purchase anyting related to this. Thanks Megan Hudzikiewicz COTA Mhudzikiewicz@sau81.org

    Having suffered with PCS and PCM myself i have recently set up an online forum where other suffers can help each other or just chat.

    There is a section for professionals where they can use members ( if willing) for research etc.

    Please have a look,

    Many thanks

    Just
