The Embracing Autism course was very well laid out with informative and enlightening videos on a wide variety of topics. It was a wealth of information that was presented in a very accessible way, with room for going away and having a think then coming back to the information, all with an opportunity for asking questions and getting specific answers. I liked the conversation approach to the videos and felt that the material was delivered in appropriate doses. At the end of each topic, I came away feeling more informed and empowered, and the live zoom at the end was really helpful, not only for information but for assuring me that I was not the only parent facing challenges. Thank you Everlief for hosting this course. I highly recommend it.
