"We had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Trayford speak on The Role of Applied Neuroscience in Addiction Recovery at a recent neurology conference. His ideas are timely and relevant to any health provider that encounters addiction in their practice. We highly recommend learning more about his unique, cross-disciplinary, brain-based approaches to addiction recovery and co-occurring learning and behavioral disorders through his online education courses".

"I would like to recommend Dr. Michael Trayford and his expertise in functional neurology as it applies to neuro-psychological disorders. His speaking style is easily discernible and applicable to the evaluation, treatment and management of complex neuropsychological conditions. His engaging style allows the learner to understand the neurology, physiology, chemistry and simple algorithms to support short term and long-term conditions. I look forward to his growing body of expert work in clinical practice and online education delivery".
