Marilee Burgeson worked with our family for a number of years providing Floortime training and therapy. She has an incredible wealth of knowledge and understanding of children with developmental delays. She sees, at a very deep level, what is going on with a child and what they need to grow and develop. She remains a trusted resource to our family and I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn how to best support their child.

Professionals Say

I was fortunate to be in one of the first groups of trainees of the HOPE Infant Program to receive training in Autism (ABA), DIR/Floortime and Project ImPACT.  Those trainings have been so beneficial to me as a special education teacher and to the family's I serve.  Marilee Burgeson was an awesome instructor in those trainings.  She taught us so much about the importance of social-emotional development and how it impacts all areas of development.  She talked about the importance of being in a calm and regulated state in order for kids, and adults too for that matter, to listen, pay attention and learn.  We learned how to work with our family's and coach them to help them feel comfortable working and playing with their children on a dailybasis during their daily routines.  Marilee is so knowledgeable in this area.  I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her and learn from her.
