SKILLS RECEIVES WARM WELCOME AT CEC CONFERENCE

The Skills team received a very warm welcome at the Council for Exceptional Children’s (CEC) Conference & Expo, held this past week in National Harbor, Maryland, just outside of DC.

Skills co-creator Dr. Adel Najdowski opened the event with a special presentation on Skills to a “standing room only” audience. Immediately following the presentation, attendees received a Skills tote bag complete with flashlight, aluminum water bottle, coffee mug, coffee mug warmer, pen, and mousepad. “This is perfect for teachers like me,” says John Simpson from Idaho. “The presentation was comprehensive – and answered all of my question about how Skills can be used in the classroom with my students.”

On the Exhibit floor, the Skills team consisting of Robert Pontello (Chief Technology Officer), Joe Mohs (Account Associate), Daphne Plump (PR & Events Manager) and Merrick Williams (Account Manager) spoke with hundreds of educators and administrators on how Skills, the new web-based autism program can be an effective tool to assess, treat and track a child’s progress in the classroom. Merrick gave multiple “in-booth” presentations to small groups of 15 every other hour.

CEC Conference and Expo attendees also had the opportunity to sign up for Skills 4 America, a charitable initiative that gives schools Skills for free until December 2011.
