What participants have said
I attended all five days — it was awesome!
The Closing The Gap Conference was beyond exceptional as many of the sessions that I attended answered the Communication needs we are experiencing.

The time I've spent at CTG each year has been well worth it now that my son is finally finding a way to communicate his wants, needs and opinion.
