Teacher Brigid! The girls ADORE your class, particularly Ava. She always talks about the concepts she learns and feels empowered and energized after each class. Thank you for being such a wonderful educator!

Can you pass on our thanks to Amy, the teacher taking the classes this week. She did an absolutely incredible job - and I really do mean incredible job of keeping the kids fully engaged and entertained through all of the sessions. She deserves real kudos and recognition. Both children loved the classes and were fully keyed up and looking forward to a second week.
Keeping a group of kids engaged is a skill at the best of times but doing so over a zoom call over an hour and a half is really exceptional!
Fiona from Skylarks Charity
The courses offered by Role Models for Skylarks children have been extremely popular and sought after, as there is a great need among children with high functioning autism, in particular, for support around anxiety and to learn the skills and techniques associated with resilience. The Role Models themselves (Giles and Louise) have been fantastic, showing great patience and empathy for the children. The children have learned more about themselves as well as strategies that they can come back to when things get tough for them.

Thank you to Role Models for helping out my son in strengthening his resilience. He has been excited to join his class with Catherine, who is brilliant with the kids. She has acknowledged his strengths, and the effort when he does something difficult in his tasks. Being in the course, he has gained skills and learned techniques to improve his mental well-being. He is braver and more adaptable on how he look at different challenges. He has shared his learnings with us, and for that we are so grateful.

It was very well thought out, very engaging and the activities were good. Also the teacher was very skilled at using zoom and seemed to manage to give each child the right amount of attention so they felt included. It really was an impressive effort and this is the only class my daughter has really engaged with online.
