Winston parent, Jill C. said, “This is my personal favorite and the most valuable event I have ever attended. It is designed for all those working with, or parenting kids with learning differences, and all that it entails. This event brings together an extensive wealth of knowledge and expertise on child development and learning. Through audience participation and networking, I continually learn new techniques, ideas and approaches that enable me to better understand and work with my own children. I haven’t missed one yet!”
