Praise for Choices and the Power of Possibility

Listening to Nicole and Johanne’s presentation is like having a heart-to-heart with your girlfriends.  They are warm and welcoming, relatable, thoughtful and humorous and the stories they share in their respective books take you with them on their journeys, covering all emotions from frustration to elation. Their never ending perseverance for navigating the best possible supports for their children from diagnosis to adulthood is not only relatable but an inspiration to everyone, not just caregivers and parents.” ~ Kelly Smiley, Intake/Special Education Advocate at The Arc of Cumberland and Perry Counties (CPARC)

“Refreshing and heartwarming to hear other mother’s triumphs in the face of autism!  We have so much to learn from others!”  ~ Susan, a recent attendee at our presentation at Community Autism Resources (CAR).
