Dr. Teresa May-Benson is an excellent teacher, she is brilliant, well organized and is passionate about the topics she presents.
The ability to participate in this intervention program was a blessing! I am so thankful for the opportunity.
Loved Sue! She did a great job explaining a difficult and detailed topic in a short period of time! Would go to any future courses taught by her. I am certified in SI and have also taken refresher theory and treatment courses, but this course was exceptional. The material was easy to follow and presented in a clear manner, making it memorable and immediately clinically applicable.
This class was phenomenal. I had no idea it would present such in-depth information that directly pertains to my practice and covers more explicit in-depth neuro, functional information and sensory pragmatics than my courses in my OT training. Thank you!
