“Approximately 60 people attended our Pro D and I have had a prodigious number of positive comments from the teachers, support workers and EA’s present.  Some wanted us to keep him while others wanted to know when we could have him back.  I had one person come up to me and say that this was by a wide margin, the most useful Pro D that they have ever had.  Another sent me an email indicating how much she appreciated the amount of really useful information and what a great Pro D it was”.
