Heard from past attendees: 

“For over 30 years I have attended MANY training sessions. This was BY FAR, one of the absolute BEST.  I gained so many totally useful techniques and suggestions.  I am very happy to have attended.   THANK YOU, GiGi’s Playhouse, for putting this together.” 

 “The information was wonderful, helpful and I’m excited to take what I’ve learned back to my school and staff!”  

“Material was easy to understand and seems easy to incorporate into any classroom.” 

 “Very informative with practical ways to implement the strategies.” 

 “I enjoyed the whole thing.  I loved how there was fact-based info, therapists and professionals from different specialties, and first-person experiences provided throughout the symposium!”   

“Such a great symposium!!! Presentations focused on everything, including sensory, gross and fine motor coordination, behavior modification.” 

 “This was one of the best workshops I have attended.  The information applies directly to my classroom, and I was able to implement tools immediately on Monday.” 

 “As a veteran therapist, I was familiar with much of the content but there were many tidbits of information I learned and a very user-friendly presentation style.  Also really appreciate and enjoy having access to the wonderful resources that were shared.” 

“Many practical tips I will be implementing right away. A lot of useful information presented in a professional and practical way.” 

Thank you to all who have attended in the past!
