Featured review

Gayle This course is incredibly important to anyone that is supporting or loving an autistic person. To understand sensory processing directly from an autistic person was so helpful to me. As an OT, I have extensive training in many things sensory. Many of these courses are taught by non-autistic people which is what makes this course extra special. Learning directly from Judy about her experiences and her framework for understanding these experiences within an autistic neurology was a game-changer for me.

So, who are we?:

We are Judy Endow and Kelly Mahler and have been friends for 9 years. We first met in a hotel in the middle of a desert right after experiencing our first haboob (which is an intense windstorm). Since meeting, we discovered that we shared a lot of common interests and have enjoyed collaborating on multiple projects over the years.
