“The information is helpful in a real-world way. It's not just concepts that are covered, but how to apply those concepts in real-life ways to help make things a bit easier for us and our kids.”

“You only gain so much information from the doctor. The topics during the summit went into much more details and gave information not given by the doctor. It was a great benefit to have access to so many different professionals and experts in one place.”

I could not recommend this more to parents whose child has been newly diagnosed or one who has been on this journey for years. I feel like everyone can glean something valuable from this Summit. Highly recommend!“

You quietly and honestly asked the best questions and did so while sharing your own personal experiences in a very real and relatable way. You sought out a wide variety of speakers who answered questions I didn’t even know to ask.”

The topics are relevant, the presenters are knowledgeable, and each video gave practical strategies and ideas. As a parent, I often feel like I am tirelessly pushing and advocating for my child and nobody understands, but these people GET IT! After this summit, I feel like we are not alone, there is hope, and we have more tools to work with. I cannot thank you enough!”
