Amazing training that you can do at your own pace. Really easy to navigate and easy to go back and watch videos again if you are unsure of anything. I love that it shows you your progress.

“This introductory course to SPD is perfectly pitched: it deals with very complex concepts in a clear, direct way which is accessible to all. I will be adding the full course to my team’s CPD. Many thanks to GriffinOT”


A clear and informative course. I learnt from every module, especially the neurology.  I highly recommend to anyone working in a special schools and ARPs, to have a more in depth understanding of our children. Thank you Kim, I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience!
