“Thank you all for this course. I have got a lot of useful information, but if you could include a visit to Malagutti kids centre with a guide it would be wonderful.”

“It was nice and interesting to communicate with participants from different countries. Very pleased with the arrival of the courses.”

“It was a very well prepared course and interesting in many aspects. The training team was involved, intelligent, opened and pleasant.”

“If I was a teacher I give this course 99,9%, sorry I’m wrong 100%! Thanks!”

“It was very good because we were involved every time (not only listening to the teacher). It made me /us think about how I am working at home. It would be better to start from the experience of the others. Maybe it is better to focus on some essential elements you want to give the courses. I always want to give a lot of information but then there is no time for experience. The course was going into depth: it gives useful insights to take back home.”

“Everything was very useful. It will help me in my future work. I would like to hear about how to work with parents with disabilities (relationship and cooperation) and with parents who doesn’t want to cooperate – what to do?”

“On the whole I enjoyed the course. I think I would ask for a break down of the extra €100 we gave in to explain/show where this extra money was used. I would like to thank Matilde for her help and kindness during our course here – a lovely young lady.”

“Matilde is a fabulous young lady. She was an asset. The tutors were excellent however a better level of English (one tutor only) is required as I was lost in translation a few times during her workshop.”

“Excellent course but I would like a breakdown of the € 100. Matilde was so helpful and fun. Lovely to have her as part of our group.”

“Overall thank you for a very good course. However, I would wonder what the €100 each was about? The tour? Bus ticket €8. Lunch Thursday? Very expensive €100 for what? The course is € 350, what is the €100 for?? Overall very good and the girls that gave the course very good. Matilde was amazing and she gave us great help and support and she’s just a lovely lady. She really was so helpful and kind and coming so a big thank you from me.”

“The teachers were very knowledgable and interesting. Matilda was very helpful in organising and answering questions. Activities in the class are great, it breaks up the lesson and shows us practically how to arrange and run the activities.”

“It was a good, perfect organisation, with professional people.”

“It was interesting for me to know how Italians deal and classificate learning disabilities. In our country, we don’t get that much attention. I wonder, maybe learning disable learners should be in mind dream schools, not specials schools in Estonia.”
