What have prior attendees had to say about the Symposia?

“The most important learning I’m taking away from this is all the concrete tools, activities and ways to organize this information. I gained ideas and frameworks and the resources to enact these ideas.”

“So many application ideas! I used many of the materials from year one and now have so many more. The time and attention spent to create all the resources is so appreciated. The materials are invaluable! This is probably the best professional development opportunity I have experienced during the past year (and last year’s symposium too).”

“I think what really happened over the [Symposium] highlights the importance of working across disciplines to support parents and families…this group is really core to continuing that effort as we prepare future practitioners in multiple disciplines.”

“Practical! Coming away with many powerful teaching tools.”
