Monthly Milestones | AUGUST 2020
Here's what attendees are saying...
"I'm enjoying every minute of the conference and while I love networking face-to-face, there's something wonderful about being able to jump on any session anytime. It's easier to access more learning this way." - Dr. Leah Gongola, BCBA

"I commend Milestones for pivoting and being flexible, and taking this amazing conference virtual. I travel all over the country and always tell people this conference is the one where I learn the most." - John Bryson, MS, ED, CESP, NEXT for AUTISM
