“..two of the boys that volunteered to go on stage with Amanda are both on the autism spectrum. For them to go on stage was remarkable. That in itself told me how well received the program was. Amanda was great in reaching out to the students. As I said yesterday, you can't teach those skills. She has them and what a pleasure to have her here.”
