Kind Words

“This course is very thorough and gave a good look from the student’s perspective. After taking this course, I will now be able to better serve the visually impaired children that have enrolled in our preschool this year, as this is a population we have not previously served.”

–Danielle Saunders, MT-BC | Austin, TX

“After taking the course, I now have some additional iPad apps to explore and ideas for data collection. I would recommend this course because Natasha offer great resources as well as ways to help develop new positions/contracts.”

–Bessie Barth, MT-BC | Sacramento, CA

Would I recommend this course? Yes, Natasha is very well versed in the area…she “knows her stuff!”

— Paula Heidman Best, MT-BC | San Diego, CA

Natasha has a beautiful speaking voice and listening to the videos was very pleasant as well as vastly informative! Although the course was geared towards working with the deaf and blind, I found many points applicable to my other clients, especially the intervention strategies. If I ever do work more with this community, 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!”

–Cindy Long, MT-BC | Reading, PA

“I totally recommend this course. We all work with people who have either hearing or visual loss, and we need to be more knowledgeable and sensitive to their needs.”

–Cari Miller, MT-BC | Webster, NY

“After taking a number of these courses, I had no hesitations prior to taking the course. I am just enthused about the learning experience and convenience of learning. I enjoyed the course. It was very practical and useful. I especially like being able to revisit the videos and reinforce learning. After taking the course, I will be able to better work with deaf and blind inmates.”

–Cynthia Shawcroft, MT-BC | Elk Grove, CA

“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.”

–Carolyn Stoller, MT-BC | Mediapolis, IA
