I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the inservice day yesterday with Susie Fuller at St Andrews School in Inverurie. Susie’s delivery was engaging and motivating and I was in admiration of the amount of knowledge she had and was able to share with us.

I just wanted to say how impressed I am. My son has excellent language skills. At the end of the first session, he asked me if he looked different. When I told him he looked the same and asked why, he said that his body felt different. He couldn’t wait to do Tacpac before bed last night, and fell asleep quite easily.

I work alongside a group of people with PMLD who really benefit from and thoroughly enjoy the use of Tacpac. We have used it for a couple of years now and have been really impressed with the way our service users have reacted to it and how much staff enjoy.

I was introduced to Tacpac 16 years ago while working as a Speech Therapist for children with cerebral palsy, now 16 years later I am the proud mum of twins, both with special needs and they love their Tacpac. We use Tacpac everyday to increase body awareness, bond and communicate. It also helps the twins relearn that touch is nice and comforting and not painful and distressing they would’ve experience in ICU. We are Tacpac’s biggest fans!

I have been working with children with special needs for the past seven years. I have been amazed at the transformation in children who have been exposed to Tacpac. As there are no trainers that I know of in the Perth area, I am interested in becoming a trainer to enable more children to reap the benefits of this wonderful program.

Even over just 3 months I have seen a massive improvement in my daughter’s anticipation, communication and emotional attachment. We will definitely carry on with Tacpac in the future – it’s one of the best parts of the day.

Thanks so much for letting us use Set 5 during lockdown. We both absolutely love the sessions.  It’s a great way to spend quality, meaningful time together. Even over just 3 months I have seen a massive improvement in my daughter’s anticipation, communication and emotional attachment. We will definitely carry on with Tacpac in the future – it’s one of the best parts of the day.

I really enjoyed it. It was so interesting to hear about the limbic system and even though I’ve been using TACPAC I certainly haven’t been using it quite right to it’s great that I can refine it! I would have loved to have heard about consent within it – it was suggested but not talked about specifically and I think it’s something people don’t always consider when it comes to people with special needs.

Great working with you all

I feel the course delivers a broad range of golden nuggets which I will use in my practice.
