Yesterday I&F organized the Adile Multiplier Event in Wexford at the Talbot Hotel. There were participants and representatives of their organizations such as Day service organizations for people with intellectual disabilities. Support groups. An Arts center. A Communication hub and a college. A Library, a craft and makers center, a school for students with intellectual disabilities, a mental health association, a family and local resource center, and the National Learning Network (Ireland’s leading provider of specialist individualized education, training, and development opportunities). The event was a huge success. All attendees expressed a great interest and were very enthusiastic about the project and its results. Using a projector we showed everybody all about the project and how to navigate the website and the platform. We had both versions of the leaflets printed and everybody liked them and found all of the information provided very informative.  There were great conversations about how much a platform like this is needed and how beneficial it will be. Everybody likes the idea of being able to create their courses using the platform, and some people have some great ideas and plans of how to use it for their organization. Everyone enjoyed having the event at the Talbot Hotel and throughout the session we had some really interesting conversations and we answered any question they had in regards to the project and the results. Overall there was great feedback. We found the Multiplier Events worked really well and was highly effective.
