–Tony PeavlerDirector of Outreach Services for Kentucky School for the Deaf

I absolutely adored the workshop. I feel like there was so much information, but not overwhelming, which can often be the case when discussing such a complex topic so comprehensively. I greatly GREATLY appreciate the obvious love the presenters have for the subject matter they are working to explain.

–Tessa Peterin, Reorganized School District R-VII, Festus, MO

I look forward to getting home to attempt to use several ideas presented in class today. The strategies taught today will help me to provide more intensive auditory training with my students.

–Cindi Trevino, Amarillo ISD, Amarillo, TX

I wanted to write you a quick note to personally say “Thank you.” I not only enjoyed visiting CID… I got some valuable information and materials to share with our staff at West Tennessee School for the Deaf. Your team of professionals did an outstanding job presenting the information and sharing the assessment tools and therapy ideas.
