Comments

  1. Do you know if non-attendees can get a DVDs of all the talks?
    Is there any possibility that this idea can be pitched to the conference organizers as many parents are interested in these conferences but can not attend for some or the other reason.

    • Great questions Noel, unfortunately I don’t have the answers to them, though. Here’s the number to ASPEN, perhaps a phone call to them would give you the answers you need: (732) 321-0880
