Hi Katie,
Thank you again for hosting all the amazing webinars! I found them incredibly informative, relevant, and full of ideas that could be practically implemented. On the “Virtual Inservice” webinar – with Kristen Hinton and Chelsea Kemp, there had been some mention that their on-line training documents might be posted in the show notes. I’m just checking in to see if that’s still in the works? If not, no worries, I will reach out to them directly.
Best wishes and a sincere “Thank You”!
Joan McCallum

PS. Let me know if you’re ever in California. Would love to show you the facility I work at!
