    EXCEPTIONAL FUNCTIONAL, PRACTICAL INFORAMTIVE STRATEGIES PROVIDED FOR SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE. VERY FLUENT & CONSISTENT STRATEGIES REINFORCED THROUGHOUT THE PRESENTATION. INTEGRATED SENSES FOR RETAINING INFORMATION: (EX: VISUAL, AUDITORY, TOUCH), WHICH FOR ME CREATED A SENSE OF TRAVELING BACK INTO TIME AND AN EAGERNESS TO EXPLORE MORE! THANK YOU!
