This is an excellent speaker with a fabulous course outline/handout. She comes from experience and knows the literature so she has applied course material and research to clinical practice. She has many novel therapy ideas and shares this information. Have her teach more!!!!!!
Review by: Nancy on August 10, 2015
This course was so encouraging to me in that it was the first continuing education class that I completed since my own TBI/ABI event in December, 2014. I am going to put many of the strategies to work in my personal life. I suffered a severe concussion and was hospitalized after falling down a half-flight of stairs. My own friends that are SLPs and a close friend who is a PT watched me and encouraged me on my road to recovery. The greatest "therapist" I had was my husband of twenty-five years who must have studied with Stephanie in a previous life. Your own work on having the information so well-organized will help me continue to recover and support my return to work. Thank you!
