OMG!  What an amazing day!!  You were absolutely amazing and I appreciate everything you had to say.  I learned so much today.  I thought I was doing things correctly, but I learned today that I wasn’t.

As a new OT in the NICU this was great information! I have an amazing and experienced mentor, but I loved gaining information from current research and sharing it with her as well!

Catherine Boatright, OTR/L

This was an extremely helpful online education opportunity which gave me some great review as well as new insight into what I can bring to my NICU babes, parents, and other staff in my NICU. Thank you!

I really enjoyed your style of teaching/presentation, including hands on, video and a complete handout.  I appreciate the collaboration for all the disciplines. Continue the good work!

Excellent training experience:  Presenters were so positive and it was evident that they have a contagious passion for giving the best care to our littlest humans.  I feel empowered to better care for my patients and their families.
