In September we had the privilege of providing services in Israel.
The talent, energy, and motivation of the ABA team there were extraordinary and we all felt extremely enthusiastic about the new and exciting directions we were taking.
Later in the month we also had the unique opportunity to present (along with nationally renowned educational consultant and author Mary Schillinger) at The 34th Annual Pacific Northwest Institute on Special Education and the Law in Seattle, WA.
Our topic was:
