The children working with Carmella learn and grow and surpass our expectations. I continuously recommend Carmella to parents of children with special needs and I am always thanked profusely once they begin working with her. She is truly special!
In one short year, Katharine single-handedly taught our son skills that triggered an enormous growth in his cognitive and motor abilities, as well as his self esteem. In the same short year, she taught us how to encourage and work with him. Most important, she gave all of us an enormous infusion of hope –- quite realistic hope – for our son’s future.
Confident Kid Club exceeded our expectations. Our 7 year old was hesitant to join the group, but at the end of the first session, he couldn’t wait to go back again. Learning how to interact with his peers in a safe setting transferred to “real life” situations outside the group. School personnel noticed a positive change in his social skills, which lead to more social interactions for him at recess and lunch. He even established some new friendships at school.
I ran an an early childhood conference where Katharine and Carmella presented a workshop on “Incorporating Social Skills Into the Early Childhood Classroom”. They were professional, a pleasure to work with and received rave reviews from teachers who took part in their workshop. Their presentation was lively,practical, with hands-on ideas teachers could take back and incorporate into their curriculum. I would recommend them highly excellent, useful and engaging presentation.
Katharine has a passion for working with young children and demonstrates a genuine commitment to the field of special education. She is incredibly supportive of all children, encouraging them to take risks, while offering an environment of safety, caring and unlimited possibilities. She has been highly recommended by parents of her former students and we are fortunate to have her as a part of our preschool community
Carmella Crowley is capable of moving mountains. You think there’s no hope and then there is an abundance of it. She is that perfect combination of professionalism, warmth, out-of-the-box thinking that supports children, parents and school staff. She never gives up on a child, always coming up with new ideas to reach a special needs child. She motivates school staff to implement educational plans and she leads the therapy team with gentle guidance and a ‘can do’ attitude.
I recently attended a social skills workshop with Katharine and Carmella, and found it to be incredibly helpful. Both women were professional in their understanding of child development, but also showed themselves to be empathic and supportive of the adults in these children’s lives. The workshop offered concrete techniques, books and activities that would help encourage a young child’s self confidence and their ability to more successfully interact with peers. I would highly recommend it.
I have worked with Katharine in my capacity as a Psychologist and CPSE Chairperson and have been impressed by her professionalism, knowledge and genuine concern for the children she has worked with. She has an excellent understanding of the educational and social needs of children, and the ability to express her ideas cogently and literally.
Carmella has guided my child to become a better version of himself. What more could a mother ask for?!
I have been in the field of Early Childhood education for over 20 years both as a teacher and a director and I have never worked with a more professional, capable SEIT. Her caring and loving nature coupled with her complete dedication to the children in her charge is remarkable.
