Autism training Expert

“I commissioned Adapt to Learn to deliver a childminding inclusion conference and some sector wide SEND workshops for the borough. The feedback was fantastic. Melanie and Tracy used their extensive knowledge and expertise in this area to deliver really interesting and interactive sessions. Their enthusiasm and passion is clearly evident and they have definitely inspired our practitioners. Their ideas and expectations are practical and realistic for all childcare providers and childminders to easily implement within their setting.”
