Join us as Amalia Starr, our speaker and facilitator fills the room with HOPE and firsthand experiences as she helps you settle in and feel comfortable.  She created this day for you, to be seen, heard, appreciated, and supported.  You will feel inspired and motivated as you learn how to help your son or daughter reach their full potential.  Although this is a serious subject Starr makes this training fun and uplifting.  She knows what you are going through because she has been where you are.  She is a parent who helped her autistic son, Brandon live his dream of independence for 17 years, even when the professionals deemed it impossible. She has been recognized as a pioneer and trailblazer blazing the trail for more than 40 years. Some of her stories will make you laugh and are easily relatable but it is her authenticity and honesty that will win your heart.  She is a bright light always sharing HOPE while addressing the future with positive regard.   Your child will spend 75% of his or her life as an adult.  We as parents and guardians must do everything we can to help our children reach their full potential. Helping my son, Brandon live his dream of independence is one of the best things I have ever done.  It is what motivates me to teach independence training to other parents so they too can obtain the same results for their child.  It is never too early to talk about Independence.  It is a lifelong process.
