Feedback from our 2010 Advanced Baby Course participants

“The course definitely exceeded all expectations. Suzanne and Kate are extremely skilled therapists and amazing teachers! I now feel more confident in identifying and focusing on specific posture and movement difficulties that are experienced by the children I work with, and am already being much more specific in my treatment. I am excited about the potential I now have to offer my children and families so much more as a Physio. The course was a very rewarding, enriching and positive experience. It was worth every cent" Kate Willoughby, PT
