"It went so very well from our standpoint! Eustacia and I touched base the week before the conference, and she asked about who would be there, how she could tailor her presentation to address any needs, etc. She also asked if she could attend meals and breakout sessions “just like any other attendee” and offered to be available to people informally during her time with the conference. Several people indeed sought her out for one-on-one conversations, and she was so gracious to take time to listen to them and to be an understanding partner in the process of living or working with people who have developmental disabilities."
"Overwhelmingly, people felt she addressed the objectives she stated and that her presentation was very helpful. She managed to keep people’s attention. That’s saying a lot, as she was the final speaker of three days of intense learning. Several people stayed after her presentation to talk with her, and she graciously responded."
