What OTs and OTAs are saying about Marina's courses

I like all of it. Working memory - breaking down the steps, recall, and check lists.

OTA Course Participant for "Executive Function in Pediatric & School-Settings: Where Do OT Practitioners Fit In?"

I liked that Marina presented a "just right" amount of information during her presentation so that she was able to take time explaining the material on each slide and give examples throughout, rather than rushing.

I liked all the information breaking down executive functioning - helpful for my own understanding and educating parents/teachers
