And here are comments from participants...

“That was the best meeting last night - she’ll have to come back... [a previous presenter] was only information, while Emily was both information and actual practice. That puts her in first place in my book” 
Brain injury support group participant

“I found Emily to be a dynamic and effective teacher. She was clear, direct and compassionate. I also felt the material was incredibly intriguing and would be a natural tool to enhance the classroom for all children”
Special Needs Teacher, Integrated Preschool Program, Northampton Public Schools

“Emily Hodos is a master at offering engaging and informative workshops! She was able to keep a diverse group of educators moving and interacting for 5 hours with nary a glance at the clock! They were all very excited to try out the Brain Gym concepts with their students.”
Kim Audette, Professional Development Coordinator & Academic Advisor, Greenfield Community College

“Emily is fun, friendly, and incredibly knowledgeable. She made learning engaging and accessible and helped our staff learn practical ways to apply a neurodevelopmental framework to our movement and dance instruction.”
Portia Abernathy, Manager of Special Needs Programming, Boston Ballet

“Entire workshop was well presented... I enjoyed... a great speaker! Very new material, (that’s saying something after 20+ years of doing this) Wahoo! Wonderful!”
Preschool Teacher, Participant at day-long conference training

“’s worth the time spent to be there. So many times we give up a day or afternoon to trainings that are ‘fluff.’ This definitely had content that teachers could sink our teeth into.” 
Shawn Tobin, Lead Teacher, Head Start, Community Action, Northampton
