What others are saying:

"I am a PTA (part-time) and I am also a Special Education teacher (full time).  It is difficult to take off during the school year to attend these courses.  I work with the multi-impaired students in the school setting.  I work closely with PT, OT and ST; these courses are excellent reviews/information to satisfy CEUs for my PTA license renewal and Teacher certification hours.  Participating in these online courses is my "Summer School." - Gloria, PT
