Loved it – Loved your teaching style and knowledge. Thank you for sharing your passion with the world and making the NICU a better place! Wonderful course, wonderful presenter, wonderful experience!

Christina Dougherty, SLP-CCC

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!

Cristina, OT

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!

Christine Jordan, SLP

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

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.

Danielle Brinkmeier, RN

Amazing and current literature resources and overall content!

Jacquelyn Molina MS, CCC-SLP

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.

Wow, can you believe we’re already through January and looking ahead to spring? 2023 was an amazing year at Creative Therapy Consultants. We certified 443 neonatal caregivers in Neonatal Touch and Massage Certification last year. 443!!! Imagine the ripple effect of the intentional, neuroprotective, developmental, family-integrated care that is now happening all over the world! That’s right, our reach is spreading around the globe and we are thrilled to have new NTMC Family worldwide. We have reached another milestone at NTMC as well – we have drawn the anatomy and trigger points on over 1000 NTMC Dolls to date! These NTMC Dolls serve to enhance the hands-on teaching in person and online, and we are proud to share them with you. Have you been considering NTMC for a while? Are you ready to see what the hype is all about? Make a resolution to take your neonatal care to the next level and join us at an NTMC in 2024!
