“I feel grateful that my son had the opportunity to learn about Internet safety in a Program specifically targeted to individuals with intellectual disabilities. The SPILLS Workshop allowed the students to learn at a slower and more deliberate pace. I feel now my son can participate in the “Social Media” realm in a much safer and informed manner.”- Jeannine, mother of SPILLS workshop graduate
