Comments          Needed more on remedies, more "how" less "why". Would have liked handouts on hand. Great presenter, great stuff, THANKS! Did not have handouts, it is hard to take notes, then try
                  to recreate a couple of days later. In the future I like to have handouts during presentation to take notes. You let audience members talk too much about their own experience--not really
                  asking questions--I came to hear you, not them! Fantastic presentation. Luckily I am an auditory learning person. Not helpful for real-world teaching/learning, too much to read on each
                  slide, no handouts at all! Having handouts in hand would have enhanced my listening--less writing. He raised more questions than he answered, I felt he had a strong bias towards
                  bilingual educational that was inappropriate for this type of conference.

                  I loved everything you had to say and I wish all of Oregon's general ed could hear this and know it! Outstanding! Wonderful, insightful, great pacing. Lots of questions. Little fast to follow
                  at first. Would like to have had handouts to jot notes on. Questions from the audience were not consistently repeated so that the rest of the audience could hear the questions.
                  Wonderful.

Do you feel our conference is a good value?
                    Definitely      Yes          Not Sure          No                                                                  Comments:

Topics you would like to see at future conferences: ELL within a language, language acquisition and development re generational poverty. We discriminate NCLB due to meeting the norms, crossover
kids, LD/disabled, more government reforms, address how to implement change, RTI does not accurately assess or diagnose LD. Multicultural assessment, fetal alcohol, meth, exposure. Multicultural
evaluations. More multicultural and RTI by excellent speakers like Dr. Ortiz. How language is affected by what is happening emotionally and mentally in their life. More presentations like Ortiz'. E.D.
assessments (best practices). Anorexia. Bring back Dr. Eden for an update. Lindamood-Bell, Wilson Reading, Kurzweil 3000. More about multicultural evaluations and autism. Music and dyslexia,
drawing and the arts and dyslexia. Louisa Cook Moats or others, more depth to topics especially best practices and understanding how LD students learn, more handouts. Hands-on remediation
techniques. Well-balanced.

One thing you would change about this conference: More vendors with items to purchase--IDA books, tapes, brochures--SoprisWest was great but items had to be ordered. More depth to topics, I
want to continue to learn new material. Temperature fluctuation. The rooms were cold. Location--bring back to Portland. Nothing, excellent! Not a thing, well-planned! Tape-record sessions, maybe end
the conf a bit earlier in the day. Sometimes cold temperature. Have handouts at conference. Nothing, you did an excellent job, enjoyed it a lot. Handouts available at conference, slides difficult to see. Tell
presenters that this audience is knowledgeable, not novices, cut to the chase, forget Educ 101, ring a bell at end of breaks. Handouts or an outline would have been helpful. Temperature control--large cold
group room, small warm PM rooms. Needed a bigger room for Dr. Ortiz' afternoon sessions.

Best part of our conference: It's near where I live. Dr. Ortiz who shared how wrong it is to label kids LD due to them coming from ELL homes or poverty, meanwhile neglecting your gifted disabled group.
Dr. Ortiz' ability to engage his audience during his presentation. Location. Samuel Ortiz, speaker. Sam Ortiz. The keynote speaker. Organization of conference. Ortiz! Ms. Hennessy's talks. Speaker's
stories in his life experience. Ortiz' presentation was magnificent, thank you! Great people, participants and speakers. It was wonderful! I'm taking a lot of information back to others! Thanks! Key
speakers were fantastic. Info on best practices for ELL. Big picture of State of Oregon efforts. The speakers. The keynoter Ortiz. Seeing friends and coworkers, good speakers. Food, organization,
content. Very, very well organized. Keynote speaker. Meeting old friends, sharing ideas, hearing speakers. Topics of interest. The presenters seemed extremely knowledgeable and excited about their
topics. I appreciated the information--mailed and e-mails--before the conference, very easy to plan. The whole thing.
