Hard to hear the videos
Review by: Nicole on October 2, 2015
It was very similar to other courses I've attended for the speaker (online and live). I enjoyed the videos showing parts of the assessment process. I think this course would be incredibly informative for an SLP who is completely lost about where to start in the process of working on /r/ with all of it's complexity.

Review by: Member on September 1, 2015
Good content but not what I expected given the name "Carryover Magic" I thought she'd talk much more about carryover and how to achieve it and much time was spent on evaluation and initial therapy goals. That being said, I do enjoy and gain much from her courses on /r/ therapy.
Review by: Mary on September 1, 2015
Lots of very specific and new information to me.
