It was a great course, really informative and very relevant to my job. My only negative would be that I would like it to be easier to go back and review a section once it has been finished to lookback at notes and glossary without having to un submit work. I found this quite complicated to move around easily.

This course was great. The platform is very easy to use, and fun to navigate. I really liked the balance of the biological/psychological knowledge and the application. It gave lots of things to think about, especially about how accessible the environments we live in are. I wish it was required for everyone to do this course; it's so useful! I will definitely complete more courses in the future. Thank you :)

Really interesting and useful course. I felt that the information was delivered clearly and succinctly. Diagrams were clear and easy to understand. Good basic grounding in SI. Helpful to have the slides/transcripts available for download - always helpful to be able to look back and refresh.

This was very complicated with lots of professional 'speak'. A more simpler introduction would have been helpful, then doing this as extra more in depth information would be helpful. Also the in-bedded videos were hard to see, pop out of full screen options would have been useful. SIE Response: Thank you for your comment, Jenny. You may find our 1-hour Understanding Sensory Processing and Integration in Children (for Parents and Carers) course is a more straightforward overview.
