Raising the Bar on Awesome: 5 Important Things YOU Need to Know About Asperkids
(An Exclusive Sitdown with Jennifer O’Toole)
Jennifer O’Toole is an Aspie, Winner of the Temple Grandin Award, internationally-celebrated author, founder of Asperkids, LLC and the mom of three young Asperkids.
But that doesn’t tell you much about who she really is. More important than awards or prizes, here’s the scoop: Jennifer’s not afraid to dress in her kid’s cape, have a dance party in the kitchen or read aloud the entire Harry Potter series – in a British accent (she’s American). That’s real. So is Jennifer. And she just happens to believe that Asperkids deserve celebrating.
Here’s your party plan.
“Raising the Bar on Awesome” is the bullet-point, “hanging out in the family room” version of Jennifer’s Award-Winning “2012 Speaker of the Year” presentation. Finally, you don’t need to travel all day to get to a conference or try like crazy to find a sitter or a substitute. The awesomeness is coming to you…a one-on-one sitdown with a friend — who just happens to be an expert in exactly the stuff you need to know about raising, teaching or working with Asperkids. Together, you’ll cover:

Relentless positivity, common sense strategies based in kindness and logic…all steeped in I-feel-like-I’ve-known-you-forever comfort. That’s the secret of Asperkids. And now, it’s a secret we get to share — with EVERYONE.
