Reviews

"As a therapist with a varied and demanding caseload, I found it interesting and applicable to many of the pupils I work with. The worksheets are well presented and need little or no preparation. I will definitely dip in for specific resources such as dealing with transitions to high school." — Speech and Language Therapy in Practice

"The ideas here are very well worth looking at if you prefer worksheets in any of your roles." — Eleanor Patrick, School Counsellor, Counselling Children & Young People
