I had a great time presenting for Kids First Maine in Freeport, Maine on Friday October 26. Thank you for all the hospitality, and special thanks to Liz, Peg, Susan and Ellen for all the work and taking care of me. You run a great conference. I was so impressed with the panel of local experts—Carlos Diaz, Justice Marygay Kennedy, and Dana Prescott. I learned a lot from you.
Some of the materials covered and resources discussed in the presentation are offered here for download.
