  • Include one day homecare visit
  • Hello Madam.  It was very exciting attending your training over the weekend.   You are such a wonderful personality with a repertoire of knowledge in the field.    I had a nice time learning new things for the first time about autism spectrum disorder as you taught with profound passion.   I have referred a friend.   I hope to pursue a carrier in this line by God's grace.    I also would like to volunteer working with you during training or special events if it falls within my spare time.    I noticed you don't use projector to teach and I may not know the reason though it would have given you enough time to display more things to us.     Your training is top notch🙌
  • Hi Barb.  My mom and I were so impressed by your course this past weekend.  you are a fabulous public speaker and provided everyone with practical information, suggestions and useful resources!  I will suggest your course to others.
  • Hi Barbara.  I was at your presentation this morning and listened to what you had to say both as a professional and a parent.  I am a staff at Aisling, and I work for the TPAS Autism Program.  I am also a parent of a son with autism;  I would love to be connected with you so we can learn from each other.  Hoping to connect with you soon.
  • I think the class needs to be more than 2 days, so that it can be explained better and deeper

  • Dear Mrs Lebo.   I wish to express my profound gratitude for the opportunity to share in your deep and hands-on understanding of Autism.  I am blessed to hear from an expert the rudiments of managing and caring for kids with autism.  I look forward with keen enthusiasm to learning more from you to be able to help in putting smiles on the faces of both parents and kids suffering from autism.   Thank you so much for the insightful presentation.  One day I hope I will have the opportunity to advance an advocacy for sufferers back home where the innocent sufferers are treated with disdain and stigmatization.  You have turned what was meant to be a pain to the gain of  others.  I am pleased to identify with you.  I am running to my night shift and I had to send this email to appreciate.  It couldn’t wait for another day.
