Parents’ feedback

“These classes are an enjoyable and essential part of our son’s week. He so looks forward to the classes ensuring he tells everyone at school before coming.”

“The classes have helped with his concentration and also with following more than one command at a time.”

“His coordination and muscle tone seems to be improving, along with his ability to listen and to carry out complex instructions.”

“[They] made great strides in managing their behaviour for themselves as well as becoming more confident in their ability to complete tasks. This was in conjunction with the improvements the students made in regards to their fine and gross motor skills, memory retention, and developing social skills.” Ciara McCooey, BABE Student and RADiate Class Assistant
