Former Student
What I would highlight I have adhd which makes it tough for me to sit still and concentrate on work yet with this course it is effectively segregated into segments effortlessly so it makes it simple to split your work up. I lack the extent that i trusted with my course as i stall out on most assignments in spite of the fact that my guide has been an awesome help and given me all that I require. I would prescribe this course to any individual who needs to work with kids.

What could be improved Everything was fine.
