Mum to 5 year old son Malaysia

"With Michelle's support my autistic child went from non-speaking at 3 years old to independently attending mainstream school, having friends, and excellent communication skills. I would recommend Michelle to any parents of an austistc child that isn't speaking" 



Mum to 10 year old daughter Europe

It is rare to encounter a specialist who really gets our child. She really looks for the gold and brings it to the surface, and she does this with us as parents also. Having Michelle's help in advocacy, coordination of services, training, direct therapy and parent training has been invaluable. I can't recommend her highly enough! 

Mum to 14 year old daughter Denmark

Michelle is not only skilled professionally, she shows incredible human insight. Michelle built an incredibly close relationship with our daughter, both as a professional but also as a human being. She has an eye for individual learning style and a large part of Michelle's teaching has been through physical movement. In our case, through dance, which is our daughter's greatest interest. Michelle manages with her always infectious mood to make the teaching interesting at the same time our daughter has gained significantly greater self-esteem. We can warmly recommend Michelle to others to make a difference for their children both academically and personally.

Minette and Damir Parents to teen & young adult Europe
"Michelle's empathy, dedication, knowledge, and experience shine through every interaction she has with parents!  My husband consistently comes away from her group coaching feeling more reassured and relaxed, confident that we are in good hands and getting good information. He especially appreciates her positive and encouraging attitude, which makes it a lot easier for him to feel like he can implement what he learns. We are both really impressed by the wealth of resources and practical advice she has at her fingertips for parenting all flavours of neurodivergent and complex kids. We would recommend working with Michelle 100%!"
