Now seeing you on FB reminds me of the website.” “ After reading articles and research, I often read reactions to assess how I can improve and incorporate best practice ideas to meet the needs of the students in my district. By bringing back what I have read to my district, I am able to work with colleagues to make change. For example, I have created a digital workgroup with resources discovered through social media. OCALI.org and the autism internet modules.” “ I work at CPAC, the CT PTI and I use various FB resources to stay current and informed.”

It is amazing how much information the disability community can share through social media. Keep up the good work!” “ We have three PTI grants . We constantly use the info from NICHCY and other disability-related organizations and individuals on various social media sites to help people with disabilities and their families. NICHCY's twitter page is why I joined twitter - it completely transformed my thinking of how to use social media. With so many organizations, groups, and just folks linking together in various ways, the amount and quality of info that we are able to share with families has skyrocketed - and we had plenty of good info before. Thanks for the great work and keep it up!” “ I have shared the information with parents of children with disabilities on my organization's social media outlets”
