Listener testimonials:

  • “Information was easy to understand, relative to my needs, resources mentioned seem useful.”
  • “Outstanding presentation and facts provided—enough to go on and research further, but not overwhelmingly so.”
  • “Wonderful! This was one of the most informative podcasts I’ve ever attended. I took three pages of notes and have a long list of things to discuss with my son’s school. I feel armed and equipped to understand the supports and advocate for assistive technology and support for my son. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!”
