What people are saying...
“I keep going back to Stephanie’s workshops on brain development and movement because she is the best I’ve seen in the field. Although I’ve attended offerings by others with the same expertise, it wasn’t until I heard Stephanie speak that I truly understood and fully grasped the meaning of the concepts that she and others present. It was through her presentations that I really understood the very important issues of cause and effect, which are essential to this topic.”

“Stephanie has supplied us with not only the research but tools and ways to assist and optimize our child’s learning ability, beginning in utero and continuing throughout the early learning years. She has also blessed educators with valuable tools to be used in the classroom.”
