Kerri is a great person to work with. She has great communication, empathy and she treats you with dignity and respect. Cynthia
Kerri is great with our 5 yr old, connected with her so well which makes sessions so much easier.
Kerri is willing to provide sessions tailored to exactly what we need, which is very hard to come by for our unique needs. She does her research and comes to each session with new ideas.
Kerri has been absolutely wonderful, providing services to help me with my youngest daughter's Better Start! Hailey B.
We found at the time of Tyler's Primary and Secondary schooling, Kerri to be a wealth of information and a rock to us all. She's very committed to clients and their families, always looking for the best way to develop skills and their understanding of disabilities, that are available. Tyler wouldn't have the confidence he does with Orientation and Mobility and just life skills in general, if it wasn't for Kerri.

Kerri has been involved with my daughter from the time she came home from hospital until into primary school. Kerri’s knowledge was invaluable for me. She guided me in the early months, helping me to understand vision impairment. What I liked the most was she steered me in the direction of self-learning so I could make informed choices. She accessed equipment needed for my daughter and brought other professionals on board that assisted us. Kerri has a warm and friendly manner which my daughter responded to and would look forward to Kerri’s visits at home and at school. Kerri’s knowledge of disability and services would make her a valuable team member, but her respect for people with disabilities will make her a cherished and admirable advocate for them.
