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

Rating: 5 stars  

I met Ben at a National Paraeducator Conference in Salt Lake City, UT. He is just an amazing guy and with all of his struggles through his life he has created this great non profit and tool for others to learn. But not only for other adults to learn but a tool to teach with. I might work with students who might not get what Ben is doing but we have helpers in the classroom that do. I love using his story to help them understand you don't pity those in my classroom and you never under estimate them either. I think every teacher should read his book and hear him speak. Being part of the Special Needs area I strongly feel it should be a requirement.

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

I have had general education teachers read his book and get a better understanding of what it is I am talking about when it comes to my students and why I do what it is I do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make his book a required study for ALL college students studding to be teachers; General education and Special education.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the willingness and ability to continue contact and conversation with everyone. I wish I could talk to him on the phone more but I am so grateful for facebook.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Change the view of expectations of students and specially of those with disabilities for the world.

Ways to make it better...

had more time...but the conference had to come to an end eventually.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

One time
