Frequently Asked Questions
What Parents Have to Say About Learning with Bright & Quirky
I have learned more from these sessions than I have from any neuropsychologist, pediatrician, educator or counselor. I am grateful for all of the professionals who shared their knowledge and passion for these children.
These sessions were so helpful and informative for both clinicians and parents. I really enjoyed the selection of speakers and even though I have been a mental health practitioner for 30 years, I learned many new concepts.
I love the warmth and positive thinking throughout all the talks. The speakers are so inspirational and insightful. It's reassuring to know you're not alone through this challenging parenting journey.
We were in a place of confusion and hopelessness when it came to helping our 2e son. B&Q gave us the right education and tools to change our home life for the better. It is so empowering to know that you can educate yourself and improve your family's situation.
So much content in one place that is difficult to find elsewhere, and a unique viewpoint. Better explanation of how to parent our unique child than we have seen despite years of parenting books, parent coaching/therapy classes. The approach makes sense to us in light of our experience with our B&Q child and what has and has not worked in the past.
