Presentations

Kopelman-eventI am comfortable and enthusiastic when I have the opportunity to participate as a presenter at conferences, lectures or events. I often speak about my academic research, but also on educational issues related to autism, community colleges, and student issues.

I always enjoy engaging with an audience, whether teaching them about a specific subject, area of content expertise, or as a host.

Here are some of my speaking engagements, according to the context:
