Comments from past students 

x was brilliant, whole team fantastic   I really enjoyed this course and look forward to the next.  Thank you!

 Its given me a great awareness sensory impairment has for people both in schools and the wider environment

'Developed the communication and understanding between the students I support and myself

This course has given me so much more confidence to stand up for child's rights and make sure I can do the very best for her and make others aware of her needs

Overall I feel I have grown in confidence I have a much better understanding of my role and the child 

The best course I've ever done!

I feel quite strongly that every support assistant working with a child with sensory loss should do this course, no ifs or buts

I found this course very interesting and feel that I have learnt so much more
