What other attendees have said:
“I loved this, and if Dr Lyn Cronin didn’t have someone grab her at the end of the presentation I would have personally let her know how valuable I found the presentation. I have been overwhelmed with the idea of making the decision around when to send my March baby who is very academic but needing support in emotional and social development. The information I was given definitely gave me a structure to tackle that with, really tangible and practical steps and considerations. I am so grateful.”
“Our son Oscar is only in Preschool but we found a lot of beneficial takeaways which we can apply to this transition as well. There were a lot of points which we hadn’t even considered so it was a great eye opener.”
