Liz wrote me this touching letter, many years after I had helped her in her year 4 class of school.

“Every child is lucky and changed by one teacher and you were that teacher for me. What I remember was your kindness. You were a gentle encouraging loving voice at an age that I needed it.”           Liz

 

From a teacher of whom I helped increase ontask time for reluctant readers:

After modelling the teaching techniques of buddy reading shared by Aprile, I found the biggest advantage was increasing the amount of on task reading time for children who had difficulty in independent SSR.”           Karen Lane

From a DP of a school I worked in:

“Thanks Aprile for the support and guidance during the development of our Social Playground Interaction Programme. Your resources, ideas and motivation were a valuable part of the development.”  Lynn Duffin

 

On a thank you card from a Parent of a child who was struggling at school:

“My son Nicholas has a special need in learning of which you understood well, you took his strengths and used these to get him through his schooling. Thank you – he is a happy boy now!”                        Pam
