Great case studiesReview by Mary
I appreciated learning the difference between ADA and ABA and I never knew that outdoor areas were only addressed by the ABA and require federal funds.The case studies were a great way to apply the information you are providing into a real life scenario to enforce learning! (Posted on 3/6/2018)
