“Sue entered the life of my 2.5 year old at just the right moment to direct  our hard work and turn it into delightful and inspiring outputs. Her mission to make sure that children are authentically and happily autistic resonated deeply with our need to accept our child just the way he is, while her expertise made sure we are deeply aware and respectful of his unique needs. My son’s smile lit up the room whenever Sue travelled from afar into our little living room with her box of goodies, which enchanted my son and commanded his rapt attention while teaching him the key skills that would ensure he remains happy and included in mainstream life. My son is non-verbal at the time of writing but, after 5 sessions with Sue, he is using visual communication like a pro. This gives him, for the first time, the ability to communicate. For us to communicate with him. For him to have perfect control over his day even though he may lack the words or not always fully understand our words. To display his vibrant and entertaining personality. To engage with others with attention and respect. To find joy and give others joy. And, to us, that is nothing short of  magical” – Parent of Z
