Keynote Speaker in Montreal at the National Tourette Syndrome Conference of Canada!

What an honor it was to give a presentation to the educators at the National Tourette Syndrome Conference of Canada! My presentation was on “Making A Difference One Day At A Time!” My goal was to educate teachers about TS and what a difference they truly make each day in the classroom.

I reminded them that each day they get to make a choice…… Are they going to focus on the weaknesses of the children or the strengths? It is my hope that they will focus on the strengths of the child. I want them to look at the positive things kids do, not all the negative. After my hour and a half presentation, they were eager to read my book!

Montreal was amazing! The French culture just made the experience that much better for me and Nancy. The conference was great and the people attending were a delight to get to know. Pictured above are Leonard Misner and Rick Fowler, author of The Unwelcome Companion.

You’ll also see that I had a chance to enjoy some delicious Pumpkin Soup in a real pumpkin bowl.
