What Others Are Saying About This Seminar:

  • “This is the first real Special Needs training I’ve received.  I wish I had gotten it 12 years ago when I first started working in school transportation. Thanks!”
  • “The issues that were addressed can be confusing to someone who has not had a significant amount of experience in the area. The material was presented in such a way as to lay the foundation for those who are new, and to reinforce the information for us old folks. It was an excellent day!”
  • “I would absolutely recommend this training.  The information I received was excellent; more than I thought possible! I can’t imagine trying to wish for more.”
  • “This is a very important and broad topic and hard to assimilate all of it. This workshop really helps put it all together.”
  • “This seminar was very useful because we all have so many different views on transporting ESE students. Everything that I and my team needed to know was explained. Truly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend to others.”
