“Would I recommend this course? Yes, Natasha is very well versed in the area…she “knows her stuff!”
“Natasha has a beautiful speaking voice and listening to the videos was very pleasant as well as vastly informative! I feel I have gained a solid background of crucial information, making it easier for me to step out of my comfort zone and expand my practice!”
“Natasha presented so much information and shared her wealth of knowledge on how to work with blind and deaf, in a way that a using textbook would be far inadequate. I was very impressed with the amount of information she shared. This was a fantastic course and heightened my awareness and desire to work with the blind and deaf communities.”
