“I am so glad that I had the opportunity to attend this conference. I feel more empowered and better educated in my role as advocate for my two sons who are on the autism spectrum. Both Peter and Pam did an excellent job of presenting in both a professional and personable manner. It was a pleasure to spend two days in their guidance and company. Thank you for this very valuable experience.”
