What people are saying about this workshop...

"This was a fabulous, worthwhile presentation.  Annie was engaging and responsive to her audience.  The information was shared in a succinct and meaningful way and was easily understood by participants.  Annie's personal experience enhanced the information that was being divulged and made it “real”.  I truly learned so much and I really didn't know I knew so little about this condition.  I would highly recommend this presentation to all of my colleagues. It's such important information and imperative in helping students with this disability." (July 2019)
