Student testimonial: "It seems so many times you attend a workshop or conference and hope to gain some real hands on skills to take back to your campus; but instead you listen to someone lecture about the problem you are having WITHOUT any or minimal suggestions. This course exceeded my expectations. My hope is that I can put this new knowledge to work for our students and their families. Thanks to all of my classmates and instructors for making this a great experience."
