Knowledgeable, caring, and professional - these words describe Amy and Evelyn Guttmann to a T. Parents sing their praises, teachers look to them for instructional guidance, and students simply grow and flourish!
Amy and Evelyn are educated in the latest techniques and strategies for helping children with sensory integration, body awareness, and OT challenges. They are successful because they study the whole child and understand what makes each individual child tick.
They are successful because they collaborate with every person who touches the life of the child - parents and teachers alike.
And, they are successful because when they take on a child as a client - the needs of that child become paramount - and that child has the best possible chance to reach their maximum potential.
As the early childhood director of a preschool, I have witnessed first-hand the remarkable and impressive work that Amy and Evelyn do with the children, and in training parents and teachers as well. Wow, what a team!
