“Munira is wonderful. I’ve been taking my son to her for years now and he adores her. My son is nonverbal and Munira completely understands him. Munira’s approach is entirely bespoke to the child, and she puts a lot of thought and effort into both the overall plan and every little exercise. She understands things from the child’s perspective and this knowledge- combined with her encouraging personality- means she is adept at drawing out the best in my son. He works extra hard with her and leaves feeling proud of himself! My son has made tremendous progress with Munira, and I really can not recommend her enough!” – Sabrina H.
