"practical, easy to implement, and made huge differences to my son’s daily routines"

"I’ve loved working 1:1 with my Kite coach. It's been practical, easy to implement, and made huge differences to my son’s daily routines, even in the first day. We focused on multiple aspects of his development [speech, social, motor, cognitive] and I loved how convenient it was, supporting my son’s learning right from the comfort of my home.”
