Review for Break Through Inc., Rapid City, SD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I worked closely with Ben for the first ten years of Break Through Inc. As co-presenter or observer, I have seen him present on many occasions. He really "delivers the goods" in that he tells his story in a sometimes humorous, impactful, and spellbinding fashion, as other reviews will attest. While his work is helpful to all ages, his presentations appear to have a particularly strong effect with younger adults who have not heard the story of a person with a disability told so personally and dramatically. In addition, his insight-producing consulting and in-service presentations have helped adults learn how to work in more effective and respectful ways with persons with disabilities. He's an effective and dynamic professional in the field of disabilities education and training.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
