After the conference sessions conclude, we will give opportunities for parents/guardians to meet with our professionals individually* (for a fee, lottery selection process), as well as for parents/guardians to sit down with one another for a closed meeting. As meeting with the specialists is high-demand, we ask that you send Katrina Fryklund your top choices and we will enter you in the lottery.
