Just wondering if anyone knows if there Has been any further development regarding the programme being available in the UK. Soo frustrating there just isn't anything like it here.

Hi Bernie, I want to keep this thread alive as believe neuro-plasticity and the program offered could benefit my daughter with Speech and Language difficulties. I was wondering how you maintain the work done in the intensive program in Canada once back in the UK and also the cost of travel accommodation is a factor too the program itself is reasonable given the opportunity. I was wondering if any mums have any info regarding how they managed it. Also are there any visiting speakers who might be giving further talks on offer in the UK for 2016 so like minded mums can connect or even approach the founders again. chupa 123

I've been in contact with eaten arrowsmith in Vancouver and have spoken to quite a few parents of kids doing it now. Most reviews are positive but I'm waiting to speak to some who were not so happy and say the academic gap is massive once you're don't and you don't know how much it will help so by forgoing more traditional approach you basically have to forgo a good 3 years to do the programme and so I don't think there's much maintenance after you left as normal daily functions will be the maintenance so things you couldn't do before but now can.

Chupa my son also has massive speech and language deficits which I'm looking at the programme addressing. It's very odd that no school in uk has taken it on and it makes me suspicious to be honest
