The course was very informative, but I want more cases of showing me when to intervene (and what happens when you do vs when you don't). The 2 appliances that are discussed (ones a GD should you use) are the TPA and FLHA. I want to see more examples of when to intervene compared agains when to not intervene. Overall the course was informative, I just don't see myself treating any differently other than referring more often and giving parents reasons for the referral
Good Summarized course
