It has been an awesome first day at the conference. I've met tons of parents and SLPs. The speakers have been excellent. My favorite so far is Peter Gerhardt. You can access his PowerPoint presentation here. He talked about creating meaningful jobs for people on the spectrum. Jobs that they are interested in. He also challenged everyone to raise the bar of expectation. It was inspiring and challenging.
We've had a ton of traffic at the National Autism Resources booth and that's been great!
I've been up since four, so I'm going to bed now. I'll blog lots more tomorrow, if I survive.
