Testimonial: "Karen Hefler provided individualized trainings to our staff at Pentucket tailored specifically to meet student needs. She presented trainings to parents, paraprofessionals, and teachers with professionalism, expertise, and a sense of humor. Her trainings resulted in a decrease in O.T. referrals and built capacity for team members to provide fine motor and sensory support to all students."
Kathleen Sullivan, Special Education Coordinator, Sweetsir and Donaghue Elementary Schools, Pentucket Regional School District
