We celebrate with Cecilia Fernandez Samar as she becomes a certified Auditory Verbal Therapist after completing our advanced training course and passing her exam.

Cecilia, Head of Audiology department from Copenhagen, Denmark said "it has been a wonderful learning experience and I have grown immensely in my Auditory Verbal (AV) practice. It has been incredibly inspiring to meet the different mentors at Auditory Verbal UK and feel their genuine passion for Auditory Verbal Therapy (AVT) and the families they work with. Seeing how the families, and especially the children, that I have worked with during the years of the training program, have developed into becoming great AV-families is just everything!"

Cecilia goes on to say "Seeing how I could develop professionally, both on my own, working with the families and implementing all the coaching and guidance that I received ongoing from my mentors at AVUK. Theory and practice really came together! In a perfect package."

Cecilia's ambition is to keep educating more people in Denmark in working with AVT. She will support this by passing on her knowledge to both colleagues and the families she works with.

Lousie Ashton, Senior Auditory Verbal Therapist and Training Lead said: "Cecilia has been a big advocate for the AV approach and has supported and encouraged a number of her colleagues to pursue further training.  She is very passionate about promoting AVT in Denmark and supporting other professionals to achieve certification." 

Cecilia tells those that are interested in the advanced training course to "go for it – it is a fabulous journey and all at AVUK are so talented! You will never regret it and neither will the families you work with!"
