If you have been on a Tacpac training, you most likely will have been trained by our training manager, Susie Fuller. We are very sad to tell you that Susie died unexpectedly during a course of medical treatment on Friday 11th September 2020. Susie has been an inspiration to the Tacpac team, a tireless trainer who loved going around the world and the UK training countless teachers, parents, and other professionals. Susie’s understanding of sensory processing, and her many years of experience working with parents and children made her the best of trainers, whose knowledge, authority and authenticity made people feel safe and comfortable, and able to leave a training filled with excitement at the thought of starting their next Tacpac session.
If anyone feels they would like to comment on the trainings they have received from Susie, it would be comforting to read. We will pass these on to her family. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any comments.
The Tacpac community sends their condolences to Susie’s family. We have lost a wonderful person, our inspired Tacpac trainer, and a good friend.
Hilary will take over as Training manager and keep Susie’s vision going, of having everyone able to deliver excellent Tacpac sessions!
